April 8, 2024 - May 27, 2024

Registration is $245 or $215 for students from their local formation partner dioceses and members of the Association for Episcopal Deacons.

Journey from lament to hope, exploring different dispositions—such as awe, curiosity, and offering—toward the more than human creation and our current ecological crisis. Each week a key reading will support an activity focused on participants’ places and contexts. Together readings and experience will provide rich material for forum conversations. Those engaged with creation care ministries in their communities, or planning them with their congregations, will find opportunities for deepening reflection and articulating the Christian reasons for concern and action.
