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.
Our Team Purple virtual book studies broaden our understanding of creation care.
We had a great conversation around the movie last meeting! A ton of themes to discuss!
Let’s circle around this month (April) to the book study that we missed. Peter Brannen has written a fascinating book about the past mass extinctions in earth’s history. Titled The Ends of the World, it isn’t too intense of a read (there are even pictures!) The Last Thursday this month is April 29. Let’s plan on a conversation around the book at 7:00 p.m.
Sign up for the Team Purple email list below, and you’ll receive the Zoom link for upcoming meetings when they become available!
If you’d like to give some love to our local booksellers, look for books for our book studies at The Raven or Signs of Life here in Lawrence! (The Raven has curbside pickup, or if you’re in Lawrence, they even offer free delivery to your doorstep.)
