In order to give us all opportunities to deepen our recovery into life-affirming spiritual practices and seed leadership ideas we can take back to our own communities of faith,Ã‚Â EcoFaith Recovery is offering a new opportunity. Whenever possible (ideally about once a month), our EcoFaith Recovery network will be invited to go on a “pilgrimage” to join a particular faith community inÃ‚Â one of theirÃ‚Â recovery practices.
During March 2014,Ã‚Â EcoFaith RecoveryÃ‚Â joins theÃ‚Â Wilderness Way CommunityÃ‚Â in a Lenten Discipline called “Our Biosphere, Ourselves.” It isÃ‚Â based upon theÃ‚Â guided meditation with water/apples/breath/pulse that we do as part of ourÃ‚Â Organizing in the Biocommons Initiative.Ã‚Â We invite you this Lent, to Ã‚Â join us in spendingÃ‚Â 10 minutes outside in prayer or meditationÃ‚Â every day for 40 days, beginning on Ash Wednesday, March 5!Ã‚Â This year there is a guided meditation as well!Ã‚Â Gather a group from your faith community to join you, if possible!
For those of you on Facebook, you can join with other EcoFaith Recovery leaders in these Lenten disciplines forÃ‚Â Our Biosphere, Ourselves.
February, 2014, join St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Beaverton, Oregon in practicing 40 Days of Nonviolence using resources from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Pace e Bene. Among the four traditions from which our Beyond Fossil Fuels effort is drawing in our partnership with OnEarth Peace is the tradition of Kingian Nonviolence. St. Andrew Lutheran Church is providing us with opportunities to engage in daily spiritual practices which nurture a spirituality of nonviolence within and among us.
