Recently I have been hearing a lot about an opportunity for people of faith to think about eco-justice issues through art. Leaps and Bounds is a one-woman theatrical performance that explores how faith speaks to economic and environmental issues. Through multiple tools including song, prayer, storytelling, and movement, performer and developer Tevyn East helps communities of faith explore the intersections of “faith, ecology, and the global economy.” Watch a promotional video for the performance.

The advantage to hosting a performance of Leaps and Bounds is that you get to experience it! It is full-body, multi-sensory learning that may blow your preconceptions. Oh, and it is wonderfully entertaining too.
This year the Advisory Committee of the Hunger Program approved a small grant to the Affording Hope Project to help support this important project.
