Interfaith Climate Retreat

The Interfaith Climate Action Team of Martha’s Vineyard will host a retreat intended to build strength and courage in the face of climate change.

We will explore a framework for “holding” our concern for the Earth, its creatures, elements, and people.  The program will include presentations, guided meditation, conversation, and singing.  Participants will leave with deeper connections to their faith/spirituality traditions for earth care and the courage and hope to take specific steps for action. Free and open to the public.

Registration is encouraged but not required. Call Heather at 508-693-0332 and leave your name, number of attendees, email and telephone number.

Retreat leader Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas has been a lead organizer of many Christian and interfaith events about care for Earth and leads retreats on spiritual resilience and resistance in a climate emergency.  Her latest book, Rooted and Rising: Voices of Courage in a Time of Climate Crisis (2019), co-edited with Leah Schade, is a collection of essays by religious environmental activists. She has been arrested in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere when protesting expanded use of fossil fuels. She serves as missioner for Creation Care for the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts and for the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ.  She also serves as Creation Care advisor for the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.  Her website, RevivingCreation.org, includes blog posts, sermons, videos, and articles.  

The Interfaith Climate Action Team of Martha’s Vineyard is comprised of representatives from multiple faith traditions including Grace Episcopal Church, the Federated Church, First Congregational Church of West Tisbury, Martha’s Vineyard Friends Meeting, the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center , St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, and the Unitarian Universalist Society of Martha’s Vineyard.  The mission of the group is to connect our faiths with concern for the earth and the challenges it faces by sharing action items and best practices within our congregations.  All faith organizations are welcome.
