Reconnecting to the land and the people who work it
Within the overall reconciliation between God, people, and nature, Restoring Eden's efforts around food and agriculture focus on reconciling the relationships between people, land, and food. We believe that because we are reconciled to God through Jesus, we also should be reconciled to each other.
2 Corinthians 5:17-18 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”
“We are called to care about and delight in the food that we eat. We are called to think about where and how it was grown and transported. We are called to consider the people and labor that participate in our being fed. We are called to nourish and care for our bodies. We are called to recover our relationship with earth and its seasons of planting, growth, harvest, and rest. We are called to pray for and walk with those who have no food on their plates. We are called to gather around the table and break bread with strangers and loved ones, giving thanks for the presence and gift of God and our entire earth community.”
