Braiding Sweetgrass ZOOM Book Club

As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these lenses of knowledge together to show that the awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. This book club will meet on the first Tuesday of every month from October to May to delve into various chapters of this book, share our own perspectives and increase our understanding of indigenous perspectives towards land and plants.

Themes for Contemplation: Monthly Discussion Circle

Third Sunday of the month at 12pm (Unless otherwise noted)

This Fall, our Adult Religious Exploration program plans to resume our monthly discussions, building on our Themes for Worship. Once a month, all are welcome to join a casual discussion circle following the service to delve into the theme of the month. Discussion circles are an opportunity for spiritual growth and exploration, for getting to know oneself, and one’s neighbours, and to spend 45 minutes engaging with the monthly theme in an interactive way.

Monthly Themes for Fall 2021:

  • September: Possibility
  • October: Uncertainty
  • November: Reality
