Tending the Seminarium:
Creation Care in Chicagoland’s Theological Schools
Friday, February 20, 2015
Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
2121 Sheridan Road
On Friday, February 20, 2015 EJC will join faculty, staff, students and administrative representatives from many of Chicago’s seminaries for a one day gathering to share institutional resources, Cknowledge and practices surrounding creation care and to identify potential opportunities for institutional and programmatic collaboration.
During the morning session, EJC’s presentation will highlight four important aspects of engagement, drawing on examples of: 1) the transformational power of experiential learning; 2) the importance of keeping an eye on the lens of justice; 3) the essential steps of advocacy and action; and 4) a holistic approach to creation care. EJC will then guide attendees as they begin to map the many resources available in the Chicago area that schools might draw on to develop and expand effective educational programs that will better prepare seminaries and their students for the work of healing the world.
