Green Sabbath Gatherings is a series of Friday afternoon virtual get-togethers helping us transition from the work week to our day of rest and weekend. These loose-format, 60 min. gatherings are an opportunity for reflection, meditation, discussion, readings, melodies, short videos or prayer. Led by a diverse group of spiritual leaders, environmentalists, activists, and writers, the contents range from religious to spiritual to secular. We might take in the environmental news of the week, contemplate our workweek and leave it behind to focus on what we want from our day of rest, seeking to re-attune our attention and energy to the whole that is our spiritual-ecological home, what some call supernatureculture.
