Winged With Longing for Better Things
These meetings for adults will include discussions centered around the Lenten devotional by eco-feminist Sylvia Sweeney. Participants are welcome to purchase a personal copy of the book, but it is not required to attend the classes: https://www.churchpublishing.org/wingedwithlongingforbetterthings. No registration is required for the sessions; drop in any time.
Here is the book’s description:
Rather than classical penitence, this book emphasizes intercession, solidarity, and preparation. Its aim is to help readers learn to view the world incarnationally and sacramentally. In rejecting one’s own embodiment and the natural world, the earth is being irreparably harmed by our destructive actions. The book invites readers to move beyond sympathy for those in strife into action and advocacy on the behalf of the earth and its less powerful inhabitants. Photographs and poetry enhance the daily devotional readings.
