Taking Time: The Significance of Sabbath in Creation Care

Climate change is a tangled problem and responding to it is an issue of economics and physics, politics and infrastructure. It is also a deeply human problem, working on the scale of culture and interpersonal relationships, personal practices and communal action. It highlights some of the deepest injustices in our society and overwhelms individuals with the complexity of the issue. All of this is compounded by the weight of our estrangement from one-another and ourselves.

Our faith tradition offers practices to stay grounded in a world gone crazy, and those same practices are gifts for the climate crisis itself.  On June 27, 2023 Pastor Kaylie Ines and Vicar Baird Linke share their work into how cultivating and defending time in our lives for practices like sabbath-keeping can heal ourselves and our world at the same time.
