The Benedictine sisters at Holy Wisdom brought into balance their care for the earth efforts by working both within their ‘household’ and systemically. They restored a wetland, created an oak savanna and continued work on a diverse prairie. They didn’t do this alone but partnered with government agencies and nonprofits to make this happen. They sought a balance between what they could do individually and worked for systemic change with others to bring about a witness and model of the difference care for the earth can be.
During the past year and a half, Climate Action events addressed our individual and household responses to water consumption, electrical use, transportation, food sovereignty and local food production. We conclude this series with our Advocacy Fair as we continue to address climate change. Here we find a community where together we can work towards change by advocating for the care of creation.
We hope you will join us for the Advocacy Fair for an opportunity to learn from a variety of nonprofit and government organizations who are working for systemic change. They need our involvement in addition to our individual commitment to implement necessary changes.
