"There is hope yet that we may embrace the call to live differently on this fragile planet. As temperatures rise and natural disasters wreak devastation and precious species die off one by one, we know we must change how we live in the world. But how? What would it look like if we took seriously the biblical charge to live more peacefully and gently on our fragile planet, if we understood ourselves as neighbors in a community of creation? Rooted Faith explores the future of the church called to live differently-one of reinhabiting our particular landscapes and confronting the assumptions of consumer culture head-on through our lives and actions. Drawing on Scripture, Christian history, and practical theology, author Sarah Werner invites readers into a new way of seeing ourselves in relationship with the rest of creation, offering tangible practices for opening up our hearts to both the beauty and tragedy around us and guiding us toward meaningful action to restore creation. There has never been a more crucial moment to reclaim this overlooked aspect of our faith as we seek to live differently-live well-on this fragile planet"-- Provided by publisher.
