An Invitation to Recovery and Hope
EcoFaith Recovery invites ELCA congregations throughout the state of Oregon to become engaged in the worldwide EcoReformation Initiative. Through a grant awarded by the Oregon Synod, ELCA, congregations will receive the opportunity to attend an EcoFaith Institute June 2-4, 2017, and participate in ten customized coaching sessions for the purpose of learning the Practices for Awakening Leadership as a resource for developing leadership and equipping them to carry out an EcoReformation project.
About EcoFaith Recovery
EcoFaith Recovery is a faith-based leadership development effort grounded near the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers and reaching out to other parts of the Pacific Northwest for the purpose of revitalizing congregational ministries to participate in the healing of creation. Rooted at that confluence, EcoFaith Recovery is fed by the deep waters of the Christian faith tradition, the environmental and eco-justice movements, and the 12-step recovery movement.
Together, our eyes are opening to the enormity of the ecological-economic-spiritual crisis before us. As we wake up, we are discovering that we are part of a much greater spiritual awakening – an awakening that allows us not only to see into the depth of the crisis, but also to commit ourselves to be a source of inspiration and healing within this crisis.
