Join Lafayette Church on Friday, September 7, 2012 at 7pm for a performance of Leaps and Bounds. Storytelling, movement, music, poetry and song weave together a powerful portrayal of the essence of our deepening ecological and economic crises. Yet, hope has the last word.

You will be inspired to imagine and initiate a more intentional relationship with the earth and our Creator. This one woman show, looking at the intersection of faith, ecology and the Global Economy, is touring churches, colleges, and seminaries across the United States in 2012. Weaving biblical and personal narrative, dance, music, and a touch of economic theory, Leaps and Bounds addresses the driving factors of our ecological crisis while awakening the imagination to a new way of living with and relating to Earth. Rev Dennis J. Parker, the Campus Minister at Portland State University, suggests “see this magical performance and find yourself laughing, humming and crying; and wanting to understand more about how our faith can inform our vision of the Judeo-Christian story that will move us to action.”
