<![CDATA[I found this great video today from PBS featuring Norman Wirzba, Research Professor of Theology, Ecology, and Rural Life Duke Divinity School and author of such books as ‘The Paradise of God: Renewing Religion in an Ecological Age’ and ‘Living the Sabbath: Discovering the Rhythms of Rest and Delight’. This excellent video gives a brief snapshot into the growing confluence between the sustainable agriculture movement and the American Church at large (of all denominations). The video also features Cedar Grove United Methodist Church‘s Anathoth Community Garden. Enjoy!

Thanks once more Jason for providing us with such an amount of inspiration that comes because you dig in the soil of information to find some pieces that are communication, transfomrational conversation and life.
My friend Claudio, now you are beginning to see my mission- to make connections that exist in the matrix of whole-life Christian faith- that would not otherwise connect. We are putting back together that which has been blown apart. Thank you for being a co-conspirator! I got your email response to my tech conversation- I wiil reply soon.
I get this message… in the discussion of extra costs of organic or locally grown food there was no mention of home gardening from a cost reduction perspective. Perhaps if we grow what we can at home and save some funds there we will have funds available for items that are more expensive but more healthy
Scott, we certainly find this has been true in our experience.
I’ve just started a blog on a topic very similar to Wirzba’s, after researching and writing on it (mostly offline) for a number of years, albeit as a layperson. Visit us at http://eatwithjoy.wordpress.com! It’s all about food, family, and faith–joyful justice and bread of life.
Thanks for the heads up about your blog Rachel! It looks like it’s right up our alley. If you’re interested in us featuring any of your content just shoot me an email: sustainabletraditions [at] gmail [dot] com. -shalom!
