The Christian faith is often portrayed as being "anti-environment," but in fact Christianity has deep roots in theology, the Bible, contemplative traditions, and ethical principles that call us to care for creation and create a just and life-sustaining society.  In this day-long retreat, Margaret Bullitt-Jonas will offer a three-part framework to transform hearts and minds about our environmental responsibility as Christians and to inspire bold and faithful action.

Rev. Margaret Bullitt -Jonas, PhD, serves as Missioner for Creation Care in the Episcopal Diocese of Western Mass. and the Mass. Conference, United Church of Christ. An experienced retreat leader and spiritual director, she is also a long-time climate activist dedicated to inspiring a wave of religious activism to address the climate crisis. Margaret is a founding member of Massachusetts Interfaith Coalition for Climate Action (MAICCA), and a leader in New England Regional Environmental Ministries (NEREM). Her most recent book (Joy of Heaven, To Earth Come Down, Forward Movement) is a collection of daily Advent-Christmas meditations on the sacredness of the natural world. She has published numerous articles in books, journals, and anthologies. She maintains a website: RevivingCreation.org.
