This is an online-only event.
This time of pandemic, challenges us about the importance of land and how it shapes the people who live upon it. Land is not neutral space; what we do, whether good or ill, will leave an ongoing legacy on the people who live there. This conference will explore how God has created land to be a gift and a sacrament for our well-being. We shall look at some of the ways we are called to heal the land; to heal wounded stories and the locations where they are rooted.
Rev Dr. Russ Parker was Director of the Acorn Christian Healing Foundation from 1995-2013, where he developed partnerships on listening and reconciliation in 12 nations including Northern Ireland, Rwanda, Burundi, Hong Kong and the United States. Russ is now the Director of 2Restore which resources churches to resolve unhealed issues and move forward in a renewed ability to flourish as God intends.
Russ is the author of Healing Dreams, Free to Fail, Forgiveness is Healing, and a number of other books. Russ teaches in UK and abroad about issues of Christian Healing and Healthcare, Reconciliation and Church Transformation.
