“Ecological conversion means falling in love with earth as an inherently valuable, living community in which we participate, and bending every effort to be creatively faithful to its well-being, in tune with the living God who brought it into being and cherishes it with unconditional love.” – Elizabeth Johnson

As we approach the end of Creation Season and prepare for the feast day of St. Francis on Oct. 4, what is our next step in eco-conversion?  How does God want to meet us through the natural world?  Our time together will include silence and guided meditation, presentations and small group conversation, and free time for solitary prayer and a contemplative walk outdoors.  Participants are invited to bring a natural object to this retreat (e.g., a few autumn leaves, a rock, shell, feather or house plant).
