REGISTER NOW FOR “Imagining Hope for the Planet and for Ourselves: Possibilities Replace Desolation”

REGISTER NOW FOR  Sunday, April 24, 2022,
12:15 p.m. to 3:15 p.m., with Rev. Alison Cornish
at First Unitarian Church of Wilmington and online

How can we remain resilient, creative and empowered to act for the healing of our irreplaceable world?

In this afternoon of reflection, we will acknowledge we live in an extraordinary moment on Earth, even as we witness the unprecedented destruction of ecological, biological and social systems.  To be effective advocates, agents of change, and able to work for justice over the long haul, we must prepare ourselves spiritually for this work.

Learn ways to face these challenges, build community and help build a life-sustaining society through the spiral of Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects. We welcome you to this afternoon of interactive and reflective practices and conversation.  Bring your own lunch; beverages will be provided.

Please register beforehand at this link.
