An Earth Perspective for Covenantal Living
This year's Mini Mission u topic focus is an exploration of covenantal living. Our time together will draw from the text Embracing Wholeness: An Earth Perspective for Covenantal Living by Jessica Stonecypher. This study explores the ways God has called us to live in covenantal relationship with all of creation and challenges readers to work toward stronger and healthier relationships with creation, communities, themselves, and God. We will explore the theological and biblical foundation for our covenantal relationship with creation and our community, both our personal and corporate responsibilities to those around us, and current issues, such as climate change, social responsibility, and justice concerns.
Mini Mission u is always an encouraging and empowering retreat. You will learn new ways to pursue your calling in faith, have invigorating conversations with peers, and enjoy the peace of a place you are invited to be still with God.
