home Saving Paradise

What:
Rita Nakashima Brock, founding co-director of Faith Voices for the Common Good, will speak about her award-winning book "Saving Paradise: How Christianity Traded Love of This World for Crucifixion and Empire." She says, "Christians are baptized into the paradise garden on earth with its great rivers of justice that roll down. Joni Mitchell sings, "We are stardust, we are golden and we've got to get ourselves back to the garden." How are we today to understand the meaning of water for the incarnation of justice and mercy in our lives, for Christian spiritual practice that loves the earth, and for the refreshment of life around the world? Come see, hear, taste the waters of paradise on earth through a multi-media talk and ritual celebrating water." Check Saturday's calendar for more chances to participate in this dialogue about faith and care for the earth.
