awaken to earth as sacrament

We pause to deeply connect with our home

pax christi florida’s spring 2012 retreat led by sister paula gonzalez-
wide-awake energized, long-time activist for our mother

proffered solutions revolve around THE EARTH CHARTER -globally given, universally inclusive, action poised.

we thank our gracious hosts at dayspring episcopal conference center on the north bank of the manatee river just outside bradenton on florida’s gulf coast, “a sacred place . . . to enrich & empower all people in christ.” its pristine 92-acre nature preserve filled us with inspiration & gratitude for the gift of our planet.

all scenes included in this video were given to my lens at dayspring except for sunrise photos from the other side of central florida outside sanford, on the south shore of lake monroe along my regular bike loop.
