“Laudato Si: A Call to Awe and Wonder; A Native American/Indigenous Perspective”
Dear Friends of BACAR,
Macrina Wiederkehr writes, “As autumn is skipping through summer’s branches, I am listening. I am listening to the dying flowing forth from autumn’s being. I am listening to the life hidden in the dying. I am listening to the summer handing over autumn…I am listening.”
Greetings from BACAR as we merge into autumn!! We are looking forward to our next BACAR Event with YOU – Wednesday, October 19, 2022 at 4:00pm PST – register here.
We continue to keep in mind and solidarity the events of the day, particularly the poor and the hungry, those facing cruel wars, torture, and sadness, and an ever-renewed hope for our Mother Earth. Yes, we listen to one another.
We continue to confirm Pope Francis’ message through an enriched lens entitled Laudato Si: A Call to Awe and Wonder; a Native American/Indigenous Perspective. Black Elk, holy man of the Ogala Lakota people, states: “Let every step you take upon Earth be as a prayer”. Black Elk invites us to walk in mindfulness, with Pope Francis, to walk in/with awe and wonder – daily relating with Earth. Our time together at this event will explore these elements to further embody Care for our Common Home: to heal Mother Earth.
We are privileged to have Sister Theresa Linehan, a religious of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. Theresa is an enrolled member of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of the Mohicans in Wisconsin. She was a teacher/administrator at Springbank Retreat Center for Eco-Spirituality and the Arts in South Carolina for 10 years where she assisted in teaching American Native Spirituality through practice, ritual and crafts.
We look forward to your continued participation in our collaborative discussions through BACAR!
Judy Borland and Kathy Noether, Co-coordinators of BACAR
