On the weekend of November 2nd and 3rd, we have an opportunity to spend time with both Scripture and sacred soil, engaging with each other to understand how God is calling us to steward creation. Using the narratives of Creation in Genesis 1-4, Rev. Dr. Nate Stucky and Rev. Jean Brown (leader of Dayspring Earth Ministry) will lead us in Bible and theological study, hands-on time on a small farm, and a meal together during a Saturday retreat. On Sunday, Rev. Dr. Stucky will lecture on his work at the Farminary, Princeton Theological Seminary’s eco-theology initiative, and preach during the 11 a.m. service.
According to theologian Nate Stucky, we often think of God and the environment as being in two distinct “buckets.” We know they’re both important, we care about both a great deal, and yet we’re not totally sure how they relate to one another. Yet now more than ever, people of faith have an urgent task, to help understand the deep connections between the environment,God, and ourselves, and then to live into that reality.
