First Congregational Church to hold discussion series

'Living the Good Life: Caring for the land and the ecological ethic of the Bible'
Apr 23, 2021
The Reverend Candice R. Provey will lead a discussion series on what it means to "live the good life," at the First Congregational Church of Camden, beginning April 25.

Camden — The First Congregational Church of Camden invites the public to participate in a new series of discussions, collectively titled, “Living the Good Life: Caring for the land and the ecological ethic of the Bible."

The Reverend Candice R. Provey, of Islesboro, will lead the discussion series, exploring what it means to "live the good life,” in ancient times and in our own. The conversation will examine what this has to do with the land and how we use it, drawing on foundational Biblical texts in conversation with the agrarian ethic and poetry of Wendell Berry.

This offering takes place on five consecutive Sundays, April 25 through May 23, from 11 a.m. to noon, via Zoom. All who wish to participate must register in advance. Contact to receive a Zoom invitation and more information on the five discussions.
