St. Benedict’s Episcopal Church and The Hollister Institute announce a new discussion via Zoom. Join us for a conversation starting on May 14 at 2 PM.
This fascinating book Rooted and Rising draws together stories from people of a wide range of different faith perspectives about how they keep themselves encouraged and hopeful in a time of climate crisis. There is lament, as there must be, but there is also courage, resilience, and action.
The authors write:
We challenged our colleagues in the faith-and-climate movement to join us in sharing their stories of struggle and strength and to give us a glimpse of what sustains them when they are frustrated, depressed or despondent. We wanted to hear about their sources of hope and to learn what keeps them going in the struggle for a just and sustainable future.
Each of the writers in this volume is dedicating their energy and their vision to finding solutions to the climate crisis and to serving the common good. It is not about facts and figures but about the people who are responding to the call to work for change. As the authors say,
This is a book about personal stories and testimony, about witnessing to what we love, what we yearn for, what we mourn, and what we are fiercely committed to protecting.
Each section of the book includes three essays and then suggestions for spiritual practice. One section will be covered each week:
- May 14: Rooting in Interfaith Friendship
- May 21: Rising in Local Action
- May 28: Rooting Science and Policy in Faith and Spirituality
- June 4: Rising from the Margins
- June 11: Rooting in Liturgy, Moral Vision, and Vocation
- June 18: Uprooted, Replanted and Rising
- June 25: Grief, Love, and Trees
