Please join us Sunday, March 11th at 10:00 AM Pacific, for a conversation entitled Love Letter to the Milky Way with Drew Dellinger.
New planetary movements are unfolding at the confluence where ecology, social justice, and cosmology meet. At the heart of these emerging transformations is a vision of the world as sacred and connected. The entire Earth community is calling us to activate our creativity and live our lives as the embodied expression of connection and compassion. According to Drew, “the future is a poem inside our pen.”
* How can we respond to this call?
* How can we bring forth our creativity in service of the planet, the people, and the future of all species?
Drawing on 20 years of study with prominent environmental thinker Thomas Berry, and his in-depth survey of the writings, speeches, and sermons of Martin Luther King Jr., Dellinger will elucidate underlying principles connecting ecology, cosmology, and justice. Dellinger will describe strategies for change that tap into the power of dream, the power of story, the power of art, and the power of action.
