Hope Remains: A Creation Care Faith Study with Kaylie Ines

October 20, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Kaylie H. Ines, Master of Divinity Graduate
Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, Berkeley, Calif.
Kaylie is a lover of all the good things in life: coffee, green tea, craft beer, sunshine, the bees, caring for
creation, flipping the table of oppression—ya know, the simple stuff! Since graduating from PLTS, she
now resides back home in Wichita, Kan., awaiting her first call. When she is not reading an academic
book or working on a church project, you can find her outdoors (in the mountains or nearest body of
water); hanging with her dog, Lilo; being an aunt to her five nieces and nephews; or at someone’s house,
honing her craft of cooking and baking.

Hope Remains: A Creation Care Faith Study
Emmaus Campus Ministry at the University of Montana, Missoula, Mont. (project site)
“Why should we continue to teach the future of the world when the world is quite literally burning?”
Those words fueled this internship project. This project, seeks to help congregations explore the very
reality of our world in the face of the climate crisis. It seeks to help congregations realize how much the
world needs united people (like the church!) to care for creation. This four-week series walks through four
ways the church is called to care for creation. In doing so, we build a common foundation on creation care
and Lutheran theology, practice grieving, look at what it means to be called disciples, and consider the
earth as a sacrament. Through a lens of hope, compassion and bold love, we learn, share and explore our
faith in action for the sake of ourselves, our neighbor and the world.
