A World of Wonder: Falling in Love with Creation Again in an Era of Climate Crisis

Friday-Sunday, May 26-28, 2017

We know that the world God created is wonderful, and yet we seem unable to stop its destruction. Is there a Christian response?

Yes, to fall in love with creation again because we protect the things we love. We will explore what it is to recover our love for creation, and to realize that being made in the image of God means being in full relationship with the Earth.

Led by the Rev. Dr. Stephen Drakeford, Rector of the Church of the Epiphany and St. Mark, Parkdale, who also preaches and teaches creation care. He sits on ecumenical and interfaith Eco-Spirituality boards and is the founder of the Green Witness Community on Toronto Island, a small group that prays for the well-being of creation. Even though he is committed to the environment, he is not committed to Birkenstocks and wool socks.
