The Wisdom Centre is pleased to welcome The Rev. Shawn Sanford Beck to St. Laurence Anglican Church on Friday, February 19 at 7:30 pm. Shawn is an Anglican Priest who has recently published a book on Christian Animism.  “Christian animism,” for many, can suggest nothing more than crude syncretism, or a blasphemous oxymoron. Shawn Sanford Beck challenges that view, from his own experiences and reflections, and those of many who find themselves on the fringes of church and society. He also searches out the fertile places of his own Christian tradition, seeking to hear a Word of healing for our Earth, a Word of grace for the trees and the animals, and a Word of invitation back to the garden of Creation, our once and future home.

The Rev. Shawn Sanford Beck is a priest, and trainer-of-priests, in the Anglican Church of Canada. He lives with his family on an off-the-grid homestead in Saskatchewan, and is the founder of the Ecumenical Companions of Sophia. This evening lecture and discussion is free and open to all. Books will be for sale for $15 by cash or cheque. The book and e-book can also be purchased at Amazon.
