This Website is a base camp, giving people a place to rest and reflect, to learn and find encouragement. Some viewers may be burned-out activists, looking for spiritual sustenance. Some may be seekers, wondering how faith and ecology connect. Some may be looking for a bit of insight, a flash of humor, or an idea for what to do next in their ongoing quest to be agents of healing, hope, and justice in the world. The planet needs everybody’s gifts and everyone has a part to play. Thank you for participating in the great work to protect life on Earth. This is an all-hands-on-deck moment, and we’re glad you’re here. To contact Margaret: mbj (at) revivingcreation.org
