FALL ONLINE COURSE
OCTOBER 21 - NOVEMBER 18
This four-week study will explore the Bible's ecological perspective, with particular attention to our place in the community of creation and our calling to "tend and keep" the earth. Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of Scripture, practical ideas to implement in their daily lives, and opportunities to connect and share with a supportive learning community. The course is geared for people who would like to know more about the biblical basis for what is often called "creation care" or "ecological Christianity," as well as those who want to take practical steps in their own earthkeeping.
The cost of the course is $45/participant (or screen)
Space is limited to 12 participants.
Participants receive access to the following:
*Facilitated webinar conversations - Wednesdays from 5:30 - 7:00pm PST, starting October 21 - with guided breakout sessions so you can get to know other participants and have multiple chances to contribute.
*Weekly curated resources - accessed through the course webpage - that highlight the theme of the week. We’ll have a weekly scripture passage and one required resource each week, with optional resources for those who want to go deeper. We will use a variety of formats: videos, podcasts, written works, and more. You can expect to spend 30-60 minutes each week engaging the scriptural text and required resource.
Here are a couple of testimonials from our spring webinar
It reinforced what God has been stirring up in my heart, giving me courage and wisdom going forward.
I found the podcasts from people who integrated creation care into their careers most helpful in large part due to the specific place I am in my own life, and the decisions I am currently looking to make.
