Launch of Earth Abbey!
Many of you joined us for Chris Sunderland’s two talks in October and were energised by hisÂ ideas about our culture andÂ the environment.Â Chris told us about “Earth Abbey”, aÂ sustainable living project and virtual/realÂ communityÂ inspired and infused byÂ Christian spirituality.
Earth Abbey is now being formally launched with a further talkÂ (to a wider audience) from Chris.Â This will take place at 7:30pm on Monday 24th November at Broadmead Baptist Church, Lower Union Street (next to Tesco Metro).Â A number of us are going and we hope you will join us.
Many who attended Chris’ talks willÂ wish toÂ get involved.Â If you missed the talks, now is your chance.Â This is an opportunity for us as Christians to participate in an urgentÂ form of mission; oneÂ in which people of all faiths and no faith can join hands andÂ start, in a small way,Â to beÂ part of the solution.
Foundationers are able to join the Earth Abbey community atÂ www.earthabbey.com.Â Â You can join as an Abbey “novice”, which is the first step towards becoming a member after six months.Â The website isÂ a beginning, a gateway to a network of knowledge, communication and friendship.
At the site you canÂ learn more about Earth Abbey’s goals, which are to foster:
- A rich relational life between human beings
- A compassion toward the earth and its creatures
- A sense of interconnectedness of all life
- Wisdom and justice in relationships
- Human fulfilment and the nurture of the inner life
- A way of living that leaves the earth better than we found it
If these values resonate with you, then pay a visit to the site – and join me, the McColls, the Kissells and hopefully many more from the Foundation communityÂ at the launch on Monday 24th November.
