Conservationists Way - Nurture Nature Practice # 1

Reverence for Life - Bringing Our Principles to Life March 29, 2015

 

JOIN US for a transformative two hour workshop with Rev. Joyner where she will guide us through a discussion and reflection on how humans can live and love deeply in a multispecies world. With the use of video, power point slides, small group discussion, and reflections we will together have a chance to work through what it means to affirm the inherent worth and dignity of individuals of different species.   What it could mean is that we live more connected to life with more ease and joy as we integrate reality, science, our values, and our Unitarian Universalist Principles and traditions.

 

This is no easy task before us to see the beauty, hold the tragedy, and grow our compassion. We need each other, and the earth and her beings need us.

 

RSVP to  minister@uudanbury.org  ASAP

To serve the lunch & this workshop I need to know if you will be there.

Inspirational Quote:

The birds around me hopped and played:

Their thoughts I cannot measure,

But the least motion which they made,

It seemed a thrill of pleasure.
