Created for Abundant Life
8:30 AM to 3:00 PM
Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori
Registrations has closed. Please contact with any questions.

We are part of creation, with a particular charge to care for the whole interconnected world that supports all life. What are we learning about more intentional and effective stewardship? How can God’s beloved, as followers of Jesus, engage in loving God, self, and all our neighbors more whole-heartedly?
We’ll use a variety of learning styles and consider a spectrum of possibilities – the human mind and heart, hands and feet, voice and appetite; the life-giving river, cloud, wind, and sun, kitchen and creative garden around us; the gifts and lives of neighbors near and far, human and not.
Come and see, hear, taste, and imagine how to live the greater love and more abundant life Jesus promised to all.
