This month, January 2022, our Adult Faith Formation initiative will begin an important discussion within our community. Based on the book BRAIDING SWEETGRASS by Robin Wall Kimmerer, Grandmother Nancy Andry, Kim Warman, and Rev. Jim Francek will facilitate a bi-monthly 75-minute virtual discussion of the book beginning January 17 until April 11th.
Robin Wall Kimmerer eloquently and beautifully uses the indigenous cultures’ sacred plant, sweetgrass, as a poetic metaphor to explain the origins of plant, animal, and human life on Mother Earth, their intertwined relationships, and the hope of ecological restoration to return the gifts of Mother Earth, and the balance that once was.
The book is “meant to heal our relationship with the world” by weaving together the three strands of indigenous ways of knowing.
To register contact Jim Francek by January 15. Space is limited. Please acquire your own copy of this book. This discussion promises to be heart-warming and soul enriching.
