Welcome to Tama Eller
Tama grew up in South Carolina with Pecan, Pine, Blue Jay, Tent Caterpillar, and a wonderful church family, as companions. Her father shared a kindness toward nature that helped grow her connection with Godâ€™s creation, alongside Bethelwoods Camp and playing outside. She studied at Country Day Academy (which had an annual conservation celebration); the University of South Carolina (for political and natural science); and Union-PSCE and Columbia Theological Seminary (for educational ministry and creation stewardship). Tama has enjoyed leading educational experiences in earth care since 1990 and serves in the Creation Stewardship Ministry in New Hope Presbytery in North Carolina and the surrounding region. She loves discovering in the wild, and her action interests include litter, safe crossings for wildlife, water, and wildlife habitat. Tama finds strength for this calling through her relationship with Christ, family and friends, and earth care companions.
Advent is coming!
For our Advent meditations this year we have focused on Pope Francisâ€™ encyclical, Laudato si, mi Signore (Be Praised, my Lord), On Care For Our Common Home. John 1:5 is our scriptural context: â€œThe light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.â€
We hope you'll join us for Advent, starting with the introduction here
