ARCAN Conference 2017

Eleanor McCloskey, CND

June 3-4, Halifax, NS. Greening Our Hearts was the theme of the gathering of 82 participants representing Atlantic Religious Communities. Dolores Hall was the presenter. Through music, poetry and time touching on contemporary reflection topics, she led us into some familiar space and also some new terrain. Dolores mentioned the serious concern around bees; we know of 700 species of bees and all are in danger of extinction, largely due to pesticides. Our food supply depends on bees! The issue of bottled water – selling our water supply – was raised. We need to be aware but always to cultivate hope. Dolores shared on the Instruction for Living a Life, from Mary Oliver: 1. Pay attention. 2. Be grateful. 3. Tell about it. She assured us we are carriers of great charisms. “The church has need of you,” she said.
