About the event
About the Program:
In an uncertain world, one thing is certain. We need each other’s wisdom, warmth and companionship to make our way through. This summer, we'll host an online book study and interactive workshop series, “Walking Through Uncertainty Together”, focused on building individual and communal resilience. Rev. Kaeley McEvoy will host the series, using the new book from well-known environmental ethicist Larry Rasmussen: The Planet You Inherit: Letters to My Grandchildren When Uncertainty’s a Sure Thing, as a guide to explore embodied spiritual practices and as an inspiration to create our own environmental love ethic in face of the unknown.
In this new book, Rasmussen pulls from a lifetime of academia and environmental activism and writes twenty-two love letters to his grandchildren, who will live on a profoundly different Earth from the one we currently inhabit. During the three-week summer book series, we’ll talk through Rasmussen’s letters and work towards writing our own letters to another generation, all the while cultivating sustainable spiritual practices to walk through climate uncertainty.
We are thrilled to have Dr. Rasmussen joining us for our final session on August 6th along with Founding Director of the Center, Beth Norcross.
