Growing Roots

Service Description:

Climate whiplash, an insurrection against our government, hundreds of years of oppression – we live in turbulent and uncertain times. Yet we also live among beings that have weathered storms before. What happens when we allow ourselves to spiritually deepen and see our non-human relatives as part of our community? What can we learn from those who have deep roots?
