The Scholars, or Team Purple, include those who engage with creation care through scholarship: intellectual, theological understandings of creation care.
Some might be interested in hearing and understanding the philosophical and intellectual ideas of creation care, including land sustainability, use of chemicals and pollution, species protection, global racism and the impact on the Global South, and climate change. This group may bring in speakers, panels, discussion groups, or read books or view movies for discussion.

Book Study – Wednesday, May 31
Join us for the May Team Purple book study as we discuss The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs by Tristan Gooley. We will be discussing the book on Wednesday, May 31 at 6:30 p.m., both in person in the Sojourners Room at FBC and virtually on Zoom.
Here is a description from AbeBooks:
“When writer and navigator Tristan Gooley journeys outside, he sees a natural world filled with clues. The roots of a tree indicate the sun’s direction; the Big Dipper tells the time; a passing butterfly hints at the weather; a sand dune reveals prevailing wind; the scent of cinnamon suggests altitude; a budding flower points south. To help you understand nature as he does, Gooley shares more than 850 tips for forecasting, tracking, and more, gathered from decades spent walking the landscape around his home and around the world. Whether you’re walking in the country or city, along a coastline, or by night, this is the ultimate resource on what the land, sun, moon, stars, plants, animals, and clouds can reveal—if you only know how to look!
