The Faith Development Team provides and supports Adult Christian Education at Cambridge United. Currently we are bringing before the congregation the realities of Climate Change and asking how our Christian Faith might influence the ways we care for this planet that we are so privileged to inhabit, including reducing carbon footprint and greenhouse gasses.
We call our current theme “Faith, Forests, and Care of the Planet.”
You may wish to read the four short articles about trees posted here. They were written by Carl Kimmett, a member of our Team.
After a presentation by Carl in the April 25th worship service, followed by a Dialogue sermon on “The Theology of Trees,” we now turn our attention to “My Special Tree.” Many people have a favourite or special tree. It may be growing in your back yard, along a familiar path, or in a forest. The tree may no longer actually exist, but you remember it from years gone by.
We now invite you to tell us about your tree, why it is special to you, some occasion you remember, or maybe how you helped it grow or what it did (or continues to do) for you. Please write just 200 words maximum (unless you really need a few more); attach a photograph or drawing if you wish. Remember to include your name. . This opportunity is open to everyone, no matter how young or old you may be!
Then … just email your My Special Tree story to Jim Phelps at JimPhelps@cogeco.ca (Jim is the Leader of the Faith Development Team.) He will have our Webmaster post it here. Then you will be sharing your special tree with others and can read about everyone else’s special tree
