The traditional works of mercy are personal acts that name how each of us can be in community and welcome each other. Feed the hungry. Give drink to the thirsty. House the homeless. Welcome the stranger. Visit the sick. Visit those in prison.
Many are now seriously asking: how can we be in deeper relationship and community with the earth? Such a question has inspired the Working Centre to experiment with a new list: an ecological works of mercy. An ecological works of mercy names those concrete, personal acts that each of us can take as we try to live more sustainably and in right relationship with creation. Cultivate reverence. Share Inventively. Expand Community. Use Tools Wisely. Honour the Indigenous Worldview.
Join Joe and Stephanie Mancini who will explore the ecological works of mercy, share stories from the Working Centre’s experience, and lead us in a conversation about what it means to live out these Ecological Works of Mercy in our personal lives.
