Grounded in the unfolding universe story, we will experience the lush rainforest of the World Heritage Listed, Mossman Gorge, the site of the Kuku Yalanji people who are among the first human inhabitants of Australia. We will discover the rich spiritual heritage that links the people of the region to the land. We will attend to our grief, bearing witness to Earth’s destruction by visiting sites impacted by deforestation of the landscape as well as visiting sites of beauty and healing.
LEARNING AND RENEWAL
This time of learning and renewal will immerse participants in the mystery of the living God, who dwells at the heart of the natural world. We will deepen our appreciation of the beauty and sacredness of the natural world, hear the cry of the earth and bring forth our imaginative responses (personal, organisational and communal) to the ecological challenges of our time and our place.
