Restoring Eden's got plenty of new ways to engage, enlighten, and connect the creation care community, and more on the way.  Check out what we've got going on this summer, below, and don't miss the awesome Wendell Berry quote at the bottom!

Reminder to all writers in our network: we'd love to publish your thoughts and stories!  Whether you've got stories about how you came to rediscover the biblical call to stewardship, how you're living it out, what political or advocacy thoughts you're pondering, or any particular "epiphany" experience you had in God's wild places, we'd love to share them in the CreationVoice and/or on our MySpace blog.  Send your articles or questions to brandon@restoringeden.org.


LOVE -- Echoes of Eden: Gardening as a Spiritual Discipline
by Brandon Rhodes

Gardening in my experience has been a deeply spiritual practice.  It is a way of engaging God’s creation in a personal and intimate way that I have found to be first of all frustrating, then humbling, next centering, now rewarding, and finally (if I succeed) delicious.  All throughout, I experience gardening as an other-minded discipline.

PROTECT -- Inconvenient Christians.org

We're still giving away free tickets to Christians to see the new global warming movie, An Inconvenient Truth, at theaters that support Fandango.com internet tickets.  This riveting documentary shows first-hand the damage already being done by human-induced global warming.

We think it's important that Christians have an opportunity to engage this pressing moral issue, so that's why we've launched InconvenientChristians.org to distribute these tickets free of charge.  Whatever your current opinions of global warming or Al Gore, here's an opportunity to see for yourself what others are talking about and give us your views.

Reserve your TWO FREE MOVIE TICKETS here: http://inconvenientchristians.org.  More details on the campaign are available here.


Cheers and blessings,
Restoring Eden Staff

“The most exemplary nature is that of the topsoil. It is very Christ-like in its passivity and beneficence, and in the penetrating energy that issues out of its peaceableness. It increases by experience, by the passage of seasons over it, growth rising out of it and returning to it, not by ambition or aggressiveness. It is enriched by all things that die and enter into it. It keeps the past, not as history or as memory, but as richness, new possibility. Its fertility is always building up out of death into promise. Death is the bridge or the tunnel by which the past enters its future.”

– Wendell Berry –
