Garrett On The Road: Hope for Creation - Minneapolis
February 17, 2018 | Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church
511 Groveland Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403
On Saturday, February 17th, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Rev. Dr. Timothy Eberhart, assistant professor of theology and ecology at Garrett-Evangelical, will lead a series of workshop sessions that explore how Christians are called to share in the healing of creation. Participants will reflect on the spiritual implications of environmental degradation, examine the relevance of Christian beliefs to an ecological perspective, and explore practical ways people of faith are engaged in mission and justice for the good of the earth. Music performed by singer-songwriter Leslie Ball will ground and uplift our reflections throughout the day.

Garrett on the Road offers a faculty-led lecture or workshop in partnership with a church outside of the Evanston/Chicago area. We invite our alums in that area or state, members of the church hosting us, and local social service organizations, prospective students, and clergy and laity that may be interested in the topic of that particular event. We also plan additional events around the workshop for Garrett-Evangelical faculty and staff to spend time with prospective students and alums.
