EDUCATION FOCUS – Creation Care: Climate Action

The three-year Education Focus aims to bring Creation care: Climate action issues to as broad an audience as possible. Dive into the Education Focus Modules and learn more about how PWRDF partners are taking climate action by clicking here.

The learning modules are being designed in response to input we received from a small consultative group. We will encourage the use of these particular resource at the local and regional levels and we can provide support, as needed, to those who wish to hold sessions.

  • 2021 theme – climate action and food security
  • 2022 theme – climate action and women
  • 2023 theme – climate action and health

Each year’s focus will include a series of learning modules written by staff and others, that can be completed in about 60 to 90 minutes, either as an individual or as a group.

Advent 2021

Thread of Hope

Designed to be used a daily reflection received in your inbox, or for group study as an entire booklet, Thread of Hope ties together a diverse array of writers, viewpoints and activities.

Each week of Advent begins with an illustration by Latvian artist Arta Aruja. It introduces the theme and scripture passage that takes us through the familiar Advent story, from the angel messengers and the journey to Bethlehem, to the shepherds responding to the message and the birth of Jesus. You will read a reflection from a PWRDF partner, volunteer or staff member, followed by a guided meditation from Cheryl Barker (to read or listen to!). Each week, a different writer will reflect on a scripture passage and offer a prayer for each day, followed by a PWRDF story.
