Spiritual Practices: Water of Life — Creation, Conservation, and Faith CHM589E

Instructor: Janeen Bertsche Johnson, MDiv

This seminar will weave together care for creation — specifically the resource of water — with study of biblical texts about water, reflection on the role of water in Christian faith, practice of spiritual and conservation disciplines, and field trips. Participants will also consider how to lead the faith community in its response to water issues. Themes include the water cycle, uses and misuses of water, impact of climate change and pollution, conservation, and restoration.
