Webinar From Grief to Healing Action: Tisha B'Av for Temple Earth

When we learn that a beloved friend has been diagnosed with a dangerous illness, first we grieve. And then – quickly – we move to pursue a healing. 

 Earth can’t breathe. Pock marks of dread danger are bursting out all over. Wildfires. Heat domes. Glaciers vanishing that gave drinking water to whole countries. Droughts and famines.  Flooded subways. Melted power lines. Dead coral reefs, acidified oceans. Roads washed away by huge rainstorms.

Time to act, time to start the healing. Time to demand behavior befitting a planetary emergency.

 From a grieving Tisha B’Av to a time of healing action.
