Faith & Nature, episode 4

"How can faith inform a love for nature?" This is the central question driving the year-long series, Faith & Nature, hosted by the Whatcom Land Trust, and facilitated by Rev. Charis Weathers of Echoes.

The first three episodes of the Faith & Nature series have been riveting! We have enjoyed hearing from dialogue partners from Buddhist, Unitarian, Christian, Muslim, and Atheist traditions. 

In episode four we will be speaking with William L. John, a Lummi Elder, language teacher, and cultural storyteller. William, who's Lummi name is Xwelxwelat'se, will be sharing some Lummi stories and insights about Lummi language. Mr. John graduated from The Evergreen State College with a degree in Indigenous Tribal Studies and served as a motivational speaker and cross cultural orientation consultant, in addition to teaching the Lummi Language at both Ferndale High School and Northwest Indian College.

This is a unique opportunity to hear from a Coast Salish elder....

Location is Faith Lutheran Church, at 2750 Mcleod Road (at intersection with Northwest Ave)

Parking is ample, and light refreshments will be available!
