What you can do this week at home:

If you are unable to join us, feel free to use these links and resources to create a faith formation opportunity in your own home this week

  • Watch a documentary about Wangari Maathai called Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai. (It’s available on Netflix; you might also be able to check it out of the library or watch it on your local PBS station.) Invite Circle of Trees participants to join you, or host a showing for the congregation.
  • Try to spend time outside each day, paying special attention to the trees near where you live.
  • Use a nature journal to record your observations and feelings about trees as you deepen your connection with them, beyond the Circle of Trees workshops.
  • Think about ways that you can engage with people and trees with respect.


I will be out of town for another week, but, am still available via email!  Let me know if I can be supportive to you in any other way!  I am here for you.


All my best with blessings,
