Discerning our collective calling: love, hope & climate justice
At Southeastern Yearly Meeting of Friends on 4/12/2017, Peterson Toscano stated in his first workshop at the Life Enrichment Center that addressing climate change is a pastoral care issue.
Peterson used storytelling, comedy, and personal witness to get Friends to have those moments and then get us talking - the community discussion was rich and (judging by what others said) the personal insights gained were plentiful - and priceless. In addition to his talks on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of the gathering, Peterson also met with SEYM youth and teens. We are all better for the experience. Many of us found ourselves pastorally cared-for, I think. It was gifts of the Spirit, liberally distributed, given to all who would receive them.
