About the event
While all around us, trees live vibrant lives hidden from the perceptions of most people. They breathe, communicate and share with each other and the wider world offering a glimpse of what sustaining interconnection looks like. There is a magical world in the forest - we simply need to learn how to look.
Bio: The Rev Pamela Rumancik (she/her) is poet, native plant enthusiast and long-time tree-hugger. She's currently a hospice chaplain after serving 10 years in congregational ministry. Her spiritual roots reach back to Catholicism, and she is an initiate into the Ruhaniat Sufi tradition. These deep liturgical origins inform her love of the arts as a vehicle for experiencing the holy otherness of life. Pam’s deepest commitments are to remembering the divine in each being and finding ways to open conversation with folks who see the world differently. Originally from Lorain, Ohio, she is the mother of three grown children and the wife of Rev Karen Mooney. Pam and Karen live in Bull Valley, Il, share their home with two goldendoodles named Parker & Ruthie, and spend a lot of time working in their gardens.
