Lasting celebrations:
Whether celebrating at home or in your place of worship, people of all faiths/spiritual traditions would like their occasions to be lasting. Sustainability is often defined as meeting the needs of current generations without compromising the needs of future generations. This is a simple definition, but putting it into practice for holidays and holy days can take thought and planning. Lisa Brenskelle will draw on her decades of work in earth care ministry in Christian and interfaith settings to explain the key aspects to consider to make your celebration sustainable. The presentation is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Sunday, November 13. Time for an interactive discussion with the speaker will be provided. Please register for this conference at

November 30

Unit: Writing and Science:
As John Muir wrote in 1911: “When we try to choose something for itself, we find it related to everything else in the Universe.” This expression of unity, which Muir observed from his time in the Sierras, has both a scientific and a spiritual basis. Muir was prescient, as known science in 1911 had only a rudimentary understanding, by our modern standards, of how all things connect. Join Lisa Brenskelle, who holds a doctorate in engineering and has spent decades working in earth-keeping ministry in Christian and interfaith settings, at 6 p.m. on Sunday, November 30, as she highlights the unity of all things as understood by modern science and as expressed in the Christian scriptures. Participants will gain a deeper appreciation of how everything connects to everything else, including how humanity is woven into the fabric of the universe. Interactive discussion time with the speaker will be scheduled. Register for this conference on
