EventsPhysically Distanced – Spiritually Connected Through Creation

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Thursday, repeating until May 7, 2020

Note: 7PM Atlantic Time

During this online time, as we live with covid-19, we do not to forget that we are called to care for and protect all of God’s creation. How we do this is being transformed – as are our lives – by the global struggle to deal with covid-19.

These gatherings have been inspired by the Center for Public Justice’s (CPJ) publication “Living for Ecological Justice”. They might be seen as a retreat, a time of reflection and prayer, an activity and a call to action.

Together we will look at questions that we can ask ourselves, our family and friends about the physical place we are each in. We are being asked, and given an opportunity to stay still. It is up to each of us to decide whether we will use this moment to deepen our love for the earth and our commitment to stand on the side of creation now, and in the weeks, months and years to come.

These sessions will be lead by Nancy Blair, a Registered Counselling Therapist in Nova Scotia, working in Animal assisted Therapy, a social justice activist and a parishioner at St. Paul’s on the Grand Parade in Halifax.

To register, email: nancyblaircounselling@gmail.com

Groups will be limited to 10 online participants (If there is enough interest we can hold more than one group per week and be more flexible by offering to hold these gatherings at a different time of day). Sessions will take place on Zoom and information on how to connect will be shared after registering.

We will be begin on April 2 ,with Part 1: “Protecting What We love”, then continue after Holy Week on April 16.
