About the Rituals in a Time of Ecological Crisis course
Becoming Green People and Earth Communities
How can Christians respond to this overwhelming time using rituals as forms of enacting mourning, resistance and liberation?
In this online course, we will explore life under the notion of the Anthropocene, a geological era defined by the devastating effects of human activity on the climate and environment and learn how to establish rituals of relation with the land around us.
We will consider three movements as we seek to address the ecological crises we are facing: Inventory, Metamorphoses, and Emergenc(i)es. We will combine analysis and practices that put together our past, present and future. The goal is to find ways to become green people and earth communities.
