Listening to the Land: A Conversation on the Stewardship of Creation
During the Season of Creation, you are invited to participate in a webinar panel presentation on Thursday, September 16 at 3pm entitled "Listening to the Land: A conversation on the stewardship of creation." Our three panellists will reflect on what listening to the land means from their perspective, tradition, and experience; what they hear the land saying and how we might respond.

The Season of Creation is observed in many Christian churches from September 1 to October 4 each year. Since 1989, September 1 has been a Day of Prayer for Creation. October 4 is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, who is for many a patron saint of environmental concern and activism. More information on the Season of Creation and prayer resources are available at seasonofcreation.org.
This webinar is planned in the spirit of the LAURC Covenant by the Ecumenical Stewardship Committee of the Anglican Diocese of Qu'Appelle, the Saskatchewan Synod of the ELCIC, and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Regina.
