Combining “earth care” and spirituality, referred to as Blue Theology, the First Christian Church of Morro Bay will inaugurate a new project, Earth Care Ministries, and commission its first Director on Sunday, Aug. 27, at its 11 a.m. service.
The church has appointed Ruth Ann Angus to the newly-established position. A long-time Morro Bay resident and freelance writer, Ruth Ann is widely recognized for her involvement in the environmental community. Her activism goes back more than thirty years when she played a key role in the formation of the Morro Bay National Estuary Program. She is a member of the Rotary Club of Morro Bay Sunset and has recently combined the Rotary International Peacebuilders program locally with Yes We Can Peacebuilders/Nonviolent Cities Project. “Our goal,” she said, “is to affect a shift in consciousness whereby we will build the structures of peace/nonviolence into community relationships.”
“Blue Theology” advocate Rev. Deborah Streeter will join with the First Christian Church, Disciples of Christ in celebrating its new ministry and commissioning its Director. Blue Theology is a ministry of the Pacific Grove Christian Church. The Blue Theology Mission Station recognizes the natural affinity between environmental stewardship and spirituality and encourages individuals and institutions to pay attention to God’s call to care for all creation and to act to promote justice for all creation.
The public is welcome to attend the celebration on Aug 27 at 11 a.m. The church is located at 2050 Ironwood Ave., Morro Bay.
