S2:E8 Resting in and with the Land

Rest is more than sleep or mindless consuming - it’s a deep-seated principle and practice that God invites us to undertake for our own health and for the health of this fragile earth, our island home.

Rest is more than sleep or mindless consuming - it’s a deep-seated principle and practice that God invites us to undertake for our own health and for the health of this fragile earth, our island home.

In this episode, Bishop Michael Curry and hosts Kyle and Sandy discuss resting in and with the land. Just as we must remember to receive God’s restoration ourselves, we also must let the creation rest and be restored. We hear from Lynnaia Main, The Episcopal Church’s representative to the United Nations, discussing how we can adjust our mindsets from the fear of scarcity to joy at the abundance that surrounds us. 

We also hear from the Rev. Nurya Love Parish, the founder of Plainsong Farm, talking about how we can incorporate the concept of Sabbath rest into communal life and the life of the creation itself.
