Baptism and Earth's Ecology - An Earth Day Forum
Sunday, April 26 at 5:30 pm
Connections between ecological crisis, pandemics, and your baptism? Theology and activism for the Earth and all creatures? Justice rolling down like mighty waters and its implications for both actual clean water and our baptismal practices?
Join a (Zoom) forum presented by the Creation Care Community of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island at 5:30 pm on Sunday, April 26. It will feature Ben Stewart - academic, theologian, activist, and Lutheran pastor. Ben presented to the clergy of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island back in January. Thanks to an invitation and support from our pro-cathedral, St. Ann & the Holy Trinity, we are excited to offer to everyone this time to listen, think and enter more deeply into a foundational Christian practice - baptism - and its life-giving yet challenging implications for our relationship to the Earth and other creatures of God. You can register to be part of this free event HERE.
Dr. Benjamin Stewart is Associate Professor of Worship and Director of Advanced Studies at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. His expertise includes Wisdom in a ‘post-truth’ culture, renewal of congregational worship life, religion and ecology, natural burial as a spiritual practice, and the history, theology, and renewal of Baptism.
We hope you will join us and spread the word widely!
