past events : Prairie Crossing trip for Clergy
“As for the wholesome land--its plants come forth by permission of their Lord. Yet as for that land which is befouled--they come forth from it only meagerly. Thus do We transform the signs of God for a people who are thankful. ” ~Quran 7:58

The clergy cafe is a moveable feast - a conversation among colleagues about Big Questions in ministry, particularly as those questions pertain to our care for the Earth. The conversation has evolved over a couple of years now, through quarterly gatherings, and this gathering will draw further on things we've been exploring - what makes a Good Life, and how do we live one in the city. To puzzle through that question we're going to the farm - to an organic farm in the Prairie Crossing development - to speak with farmers and conservationists about their work on Earth, and how we, as clergy, might relate to it through work on the farm and religious reflection.
Want to join us? All clergy are welcome, but please call ahead so that we can include you in carpooling arrangements and the lunch count.
