Activist Alphabet: reflections on faithful environmental activism

Activist Alphabet author Donna Sinclair will offer readings and conversation about why and how we might try to live out God’s call to live with respect in Creation. Webinar participants in Northern Ontario might be especially interested in some anecdotes described in this book —  many of the people involved will be familiar.  Faith communities can be far more influential that we sometimes think in the now-enormous struggle to care for our lovely and threatened planet. Questions, comments and opinions will be welcome.

Monday, October 19th, 6:30-8pm via Zoom
