Friends and Sabbath in the Time of Climate Change

August 1, 2022 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

A First Monday Lecture with Cherice Bock

Though keeping the Sabbath is one of the Ten Commandments, Friends historically and today have a variety of perspectives on Sabbath-keeping, from rejecting it as legalistic to strictly enforcing it. This First Monday Lecture will focus on ways that practicing the Sabbath might help face the spiritual and emotional experiences of our changing climate. In this moment of potential for a just transition to a sustainable future, practicing the Sabbath may support us as we begin orienting to the community of all life.
