Earth and Spirit Speaker's Series

Justice for the earth and justice for First Nations is the focus of a four-evening series “Earth and Spirit” organized by St. Anselm's for October. “If we are serious about God's kingdom,” says Rev. Munn the Priest-in-charge, “that isn't just about our private lives. That's about God's whole world. In this series we team up with leaders from other communities. We've asked them to open our eyes, challenge, and encourage the church to prepare for the coming of God's kingdom. ”

Each evening begins with a hymn related to the speaker's topic, the speaker will respond to questions following their talk, and the evening concludes with a social time when people can chat informally with the speaker.

Wednesday evenings in October, 7:30pm at St. Anselm's, 5210 University Blvd, across from the UBC golf club.
