New Lent Book

Gayle Boss's new book is called Wild Hope: Stories for Lent from the Vanishing. It's amazing and will take you on a real journey of transformative spirituality through the suffering eyes of the natural world. The author would be happy to zoom for an hour with any churches or organizations who purchase 10 or more copies. This book comes with a downloadable study guide as well.

Worship that Reorients us as Creation-Centered
Bridget Jones shares an essay on "Liturgy to Reconcile People and the Planet" and looks at our worship practices, reminding us that greening the congregation absolutely doesn't stop at the doors of the sanctuary, but can fill our whole worship practice.

A Song of Inspiration
If you're looking for some of the feeling of this website and what we mean by praising the triune God with creation, the song "Holy Now" by Minnesota singer-songwriter Peter Mayer may give you a feeling for it.
