‘As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowledge together to take us on “a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise’ -Elizabeth Gilbert.

On March 29th, our congregation will begin a journey of curiosity and awe together as we discuss the elements of Robin Wall Kimmerer’s masterpiece, Braiding Sweetgrass.

On Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm, weekly sessions will be led by the Indigenous Connections section of your Eighth Principle Ministry Committee. Our dialogues promise to inspire each and all with the wonderment of  Kimmerer’s insights at a time of the year when our own plants and flowers are coming into a new growing season.
