Special Program

Exploring the Thin Place Between Sacred and Soil
led by the Rev. Dottie Yunger

Genesis tells us that we are created by God in the image of God. We are “adam created from adamah”—the earthling created from the earth. When God said, “Let us create humans,” is it possible that the us is God and earth? If so, what does it mean to be humans created in the image of God and earth, the divine and the dirt, the sacred and the soil? Explore this thin place—the place between the sacred and the soil—and understand more fully our connection to God, one another, and all of creation. Join the Rev. Dottie Yunger a journey in scripture and nature, focusing on the wisdom of the creation stories and the wisdom of our local watershed, the Potomac River.
