Faithful Climate Conversations
We need to talk — all of us — about climate.
What better place to open up this vital conversation than within our own circles of faith?
“For the Love of Creation” invites faith communities across Canada to come together to reflect, listen, share, and advocate for climate justice.
Tuesday, February 23rd, 7 to 9 p.m. via Zoom

Here in Saskatchewan, the listening part will be crucial, and for that, FLC offers three discussion guides for small groups. Join us to explore the first guide, “Creation, Climate and You,” and get ready to use these guides in your own community. Our evening together will follow the guide’s agenda, including breakout rooms for the discussion portions so we can experience the small-group format. We’ll conclude with a sharing time where you can exchange ideas and inspiration to help you launch your own “Faithful Climate Conversations.”

Dethroning Mammon – A Stewardship Book Discussion for Lent
Dethroning Mammon: Making Money Serve Grace is a book by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby in which he looks at the subject of money and materialism. Designed for study in the weeks of Lent, Dethroning Mammon discusses how our own attitudes and the pressures of society affect how we handle the power of money (Mammon). Reading and reflecting on the book will help us think more fully about the power of money in our lives and our world. Over six weeks we can grow as disciples and stewards through reading, conversing, and praying together.
What: a one-hour book discussion (one chapter a week) via Zoom
When: Tuesdays (February 23, March 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30) at 1 pm CST
Who: led by Archdeacon Cheryl Toth (Stewardship Officer with the Anglican Diocese of Qu’Appelle) and up to 12 participants
How: register by emailing Cheryl at email@example.com
How do I get the book? Books have been ordered through Regina bookstore The Penny University. You are asked to contribute the cost of your book. E-versions of the book are available.
This study is open to people of all denominations and is offered in the spirit of LAURC, the covenant between the Lutheran (ELCIC), Anglican, Ukrainian and Roman Catholic churches in Saskatchewan.
