In a world where the realities of climate change are becoming increasingly and viscerally evident, it is easy to fall into despair. In a world changed by the Covid-19 Pandemic, it is easy to become overwhelmed with fear and anxiety. Drawing from the work of Joanna Macy and Wendell Berry this service helps us cultivate the spiritual resiliency to respond to these large, global crises. When we ground ourselves in gratitude we find the courage to honor our pain at all that is being lost, and from there we can see with new eyes how to care for the earth and one another.
