Spirit Series A Word Series B Background Why? The following books are helpful in understanding and planning Christian worship, especially as it relates to God's creation. The style of this book relates deeply to the work of this website. A Watered Garden begins with the classic, ecumenically held patterns of Christian worship and explores them for their deep connections to ecological wisdom, for their sacramental approaches to creation, and for a renewed relationship to the earth now itself in need of God's healing.
This book is written especially for North Americans: people who live in a specific ecological region, and who play a particular role in the world's ecology. And of course it is written for Christians, especially those who are part of the Lutheran movement. Available from Augsburg Fortress. How can we proclaim justice for God's Creation in the face of climate disruption? How do we share the good news of resurrection even as humans are crucifying Creation?
