A Lenten Practice of Reading and Reflection
Wednesday, March 15, 12:45pm - 2:00pm
An event every week that begins at 12:45pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, March 22, 2023
Redeemer Explorers and Creation Matters invite you to join us as we read Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World. We’ll use our discussions together as a Lenten practice of self-examination and reflection on the choices we make from day to day.
Discussion groups of about a dozen participants each will meet weekly four times during Lent, beginning the week of February 27. At least one of our groups will meet on Zoom, and at least one in person.
The author, Katharine Hayhoe, is a climate scientist and a Christian, a global leader in her field who was recently named chief scientist at The Nature Conservancy.
Her book is a multilayered look at science, faith, and human psychology, and at how our choices now will determine our future. She invites us to think deeply about what we value and what we do. Saving Us leaves us with tools for dialogue about how we all can play a role in pushing forward for change.
We ask participants to secure their own copies. The book is widely available at bookstores and through the Toronto Public Library.
Wednesday Book Group Details: The group will meet on Zoom at 7:30 PM on Wednesdays, March 1, 8, 15, and 22. Please take a moment to register so that we can plan for the sessions.
Our ability to gather for worship, fellowship and formation and to support the many outreach ministries that are integral to our call to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world is possible thanks to the generous donations of parishioners and friends of the community. If you would like to share in this ongoing work, your gifts are gratefully received. Thank you for your generosity.
