From Saints to Scientists -
A Retreat Exploring Our New Additional Baptismal Vow
The June Retreat with Alexis Saunders
Will you strive to safeguard the integrity of God’s creation and respect, sustain, and renew the life of the earth?
Through a daily cycle of prayer, reflection, silence, and response, we will both individually and as a group explore how we can safeguard God’s creation.
After our times of daily prayer and a reflection you will be invited to be in silence in the natural world, closely observing, listening, and thinking. You may respond through journaling, writing, any of the arts, or through scientific exploration. If you wish, your responses can be shared with the group.
This retreat is your time to engage in this topic in your own way.
ALEXIS SAUNDERS grew up in the Guiding movement, spending most weekends out in the woods, learning about the plants and trees, birds and insects, and care and respect for all that live there. This early learning has shaped her core values and principles, actions and study throughout her adult life.
She is currently the interim priest at St. Michael and All Angels Anglican Church in Prince George, where she lives in a small house and is beginning to establish a permaculture garden.
