Held at All Souls Interfaith Gathering and online on Zoom (link will be provided upon registration). Meeting monthly. By donation.
"What we need is a new Order: a community and movement of people of varied belief systems (or non-belief systems) who share one sacred vow: to preserve Mother Earth and to become the best lovers (mystics) and defenders (warriors) they can be on behalf of Mother Earth. A post-denominational Order and a post-religious Order. Therefore, a Spiritual Order." ~ Order of the Sacred Earth
All Souls has formed a pod of the Order of the Sacred Earth. The time is now! We are welcoming all persons, faith or no-faith, young and old alike, to unite around Earth preservation, education, and connection.
In this pod, we will come together once a month as a community, both in person and online, read the book, 'The Order of the Sacred Earth", hold discussion groups, learn from guest speakers, connect and celebrate the Earth, and finally an opportunity to participate in a ritual vow in which we pledge ourselves to the Earth and her preservation.
Thanks to a generous grant from the New Perennials Project at Middlebury College, for providing funding for this project.
The Champlain Pod of the Order of the Sacred Earth is led by Rev. Don Chatfield and co-facilitators Mariko Middleton and Rev. Kim Marie Glynn.
