· Everyone is Invited: Bring your friends and family to attend with you – All are Welcome!
“All important ideas must include the trees, the mountains, and the rivers.” - Mary Oliver
Daniel will share with us about his new book, Speak with the Earth and It Will Teach You: A Field Guide to the Bible (Pilgrim Press) and about his journey in ministry and writing, beginning with his ordination at Federated Church in May 2011. Daniel will share why he wrote the book, read a few passages, and explore how it might be useful to us in the context of the ecological and climate call of our times.
Within the workshop, Daniel will guide spiritual practice to move us from head to heart, and allow time to reflect together about where and how we attend to the expressions of God in nature. Q&A, and a book signing will follow. All ages and spiritual traditions/orientations welcome! This event could be especially appealing to those who consider themselves “spiritual but not religious,” and to those who’s spiritual practice comes in the form of birdwatching, hiking, cloud spotting and sunset viewing, and otherwise enjoying and celebrating nature.
