April 25: Extraction or Sustenance: Rethinking our Relationship to Land

  •  Who benefits from resource extraction?

  •  How do we justify the destruction of land?

  •  What are other ways of relating to land?

  • How can the land be renewed?

    You are invited to join the conversation…  April 25th,  7:00 to 9:00 pm @

We are all enmeshed in systems of resource extraction. We use natural gas to heat our homes, oil derivatives to power our cars, mined materials to make our electronics function, lumber to structure our homes, and water to quench our thirsts and keep us clean. But how do we get these resources, and at what cost? What are the systems that bring them to us, but also what are the narratives and beliefs that enable their extraction from the land? 
On Monday, April 25, Streams of Justice invites you to come and explore these questions and more in an open, roundtable discussion format. As people inspired by the ancient Jewish and Christian traditions of justice, we are trying to understand what might be broken in our relationships to land, and how the biblical narrative can help us recover a more just, and more sustainable relationship to land.
