At the Redeemer, we know that asking deeper questions and exploring issues of faith helps us grow both as individuals and as a community.
A Lenten Practice of Reading and Reflection
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.
About Redeemer Explorers
Our congregation offers a rare and rich diversity of learning opportunities. These include the initiatives of committees and ministry areas like Creation Matters and the Indigenous Solidarity Working Group (ISWG), as well as offerings from outside the parish, such as the courses led by Sylvia Keesmaat and Brian Walsh through Bible Remixed.
Redeemer Explorers aims to complement these offerings with opportunities for small-group discussion and reflection, experiential learning events like labyrinth walks, and occasional one-time programs on specific topics.
