Earth Gospel by Sam Hamilton-Poore
Do something for the environment—pray for the earth.
The icecaps are melting. The air we breathe and the water we drink are polluted. Forests are being cleared of oxygen-making trees and ecosystem-integral wildlife.
Our daily lives impact our earth—mostly leaving negative footprints. The environmental challenges we face are real and almost out of control. We’re free to enjoy the earth’s bounty and beauty, but along with that privilege comes responsibility.
How are Christians to respond as stewards of God’s creation? Explore through prayer the interconnecting love that binds God, humankind, and creation—forming a sacred trust.
Earth Gospel offers four weeks of prayer (seven days per week with prayers for morning, midday, and evening) to encourage care of God’s creation. Each daily reading includes scripture, hymn texts, beautiful poems and reflections from sages across time, and blessings. Featured voices include Emily Dickson, Wendell Berry, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther, e.e. cummings, Julia Esquivel, Annie Dillard, Henry David Thoreau, Catherine of Siena, and many others.
Conveniently sized to tuck into a backpack for a field expedition or as a companion to your Bible during prayer time, Earth Gospel will deepen your appreciation and commitment to creation. Use it daily, and it will change your life.
