A ritual to empower creative action for the environment.

*Are you an activist looking for a place to find a nourishing and supportive community?
*Are you a person of faith interested in exploring the connection between spirit and environment?
*Do you want to participate in environmental ritual suited to the 21st century?

Join us at the CERES urban oasis to explore deep ecology rituals inspired by Buddhist activist and teacher Joanna Macy and her “Work That Reconnects”.

This first ritual will focus on gratitude. We hope to follow with further rituals over the year.

Gratitude Ritual: 6pm – 7pm
Nibbles and discussion: 7pm – 8pm
Suggested donation of $5 – $10

Guest Speaker:
Rev. Dr Robert Stringer
from the Uniting LGBTIQ Network who will speak on Marriage Equality – the Bible and the Church.

The Service will celebrate Marriage Equality in Australian law and discuss   the issues now confronting the Uniting Church in Australia whose current marriage law still affirms that marriage is between a man and a woman. These issues are also on the Agenda of the upcoming Uniting Church in Australia Assembly which will meet here in Melbourne in July this year. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion during the service.
