As Rachel says: ‘Many people find that they experience spiritual connection more readily when outdoors, and indeed the Bible is full of imagery drawn from the natural world. Creation is well able to speak to us of the creator, and we can take each encounter as our own personal parable, listening to what God wishes to share with us through it.’

We are increasingly disconnected from the earth and from one another, and we are impoverished as a result.
We are seeing nature despoiled by the same forces that violate and oppress the human spirit. Why is it more compelling to imagine planetary collapse than the end of injustice? How can we change the story? How can we make the connections so urgently needed so that we can work together to create a place where all can flourish?
