PEI Town Hall Consultations Regarding Climate Change

Environment Minister McKenna has invited Canadians to participate in crafting the principles of Canada's Climate Action Plan. It has been suggested by Government that Members of Parliament host Town Hall meetings in their ridings. On PEI we have four MPs and I am pleased to share the good news that they will be co-hosting Town Hall consultations on Climate Change with ECOPEI. This is scheduled for August 10 at Confederation Landing, Charlottetown from 5pm to 7pm. As well, each of the MPs will be hosting their own within their constituency. To date Wayne Easter announced that his Town Hall will be held in Hunter River on July 13. For further information there will be an ad in both the July and August editions of the Buzz paper. 

Hopefully, those of us living near will make every effort to participate and to encourage others, family and friends to come out and to show support to those more involved. Presently, I don't know what the format will be, however it would be easy to get this information. 

Let us pray that there will be many Town Hall consultations across the country and that our government will move forward in the right direction.

Thomas Berry: Prophet and Mystic of the Earth

By Kathleen Deignan and Kevin Cawley

An e-course is being offered by Spirituality and Practice

July 4 – 29, 2016 at a cost of $59.95 [US funds]

Try something new... it’s easy. You can do it!

An exploration of the contemplative depth and call to practice in Thomas Berry's works.

Kathleen and Kevin share a mission to bring ecological wisdom to faith and education communities, particularly the legacy of Thomas Berry and also the challenges of Pope Francis, whose recent letter to the world — Laudato Si — is a global summons to care for our common home. In this way they hope to contribute to The Great Work of our time: healing the human soul that we might heal the Earth.

In this exclusive e-course developed for Spirituality & Practice, Kathleen and Kevin will draw out the contemplative depth and call to practice in Berry's works. They will focus on foundational themes from his life -- like Storyteller of the Universe, Mystic of the Meadow, and Master of Creation Spirituality -- drawn from Thomas Berry: Selected Writings on the Earth Community, published by Orbis in 2014.
