Discussion:

  • Debbie led us in the final, official session for her DMin project on ecojustice.  We decided to continue the same topic going forward in this way:  Debbie will present and lead discussions on a short, video series by Katharine Hayhoe, author of Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World.  Meanwhile, using the links in “Resources to Inspire Acts of Ecojustice” in Conversation 6 of our retreat program book, everyone will do some independent research.  Then in two weeks, we will choose ideas we are interested in, break out into interest groups, and prepare a brief presentation for the whole group.  Following the presentations, we will discern the act(s) of ecojustice we wish to pursue.  More details will follow.       

Joys and Concerns:

  • Cos went to see Bryson perform in the City of North Glenn’s production of Alice in Wonderland.
  • Judy is recovering well.  Her stint will be removed on Tuesday.
  • Joel and Ellen are traveling to Greece.  Phil and Debbie are watching the kids.
  • Sarah and family are traveling to California to visit Yosemite National Park. 
  • Bruce will have surgery on Wednesday to repair a tendon in his shoulder.  He’ll be in a splint for three months while he recovers.
  • Former CRMR Associate Minister Kaye Murphy passed away last Thursday. 
  • Richard’s friend, Eldon, the husband of one of Kaye’s college roommates, is currently hospitalized.  He’ll go to assisted living after he is discharged.
  • Win has a bad cold, which has been going on for some time. 
  • Thinking of all those in the path of Hurricane Ian (and others) who have lost their homes, businesses, and loved ones.
  • Thinking of Evergreen Christian Church’s search committee and hoping their work may be productive.
