Working with the Land

God calls us to new and reconciled relationships, and that includes our relationship with the earth. Part of healing our relationship with creation is learning to work with the land instead of against it. That means studying how it works and mimicking it in our own agriculture.

As we study creation we begin to understand God's endless creativity and the great love he has for diversity. This video reminds us that not only is biodiversity beautiful but it is critical for our survival. God's plants and creatures were created with a purpose and a role to fill.

It is also interesting to see that much of what we are trying to do in the tropics also has application in temperate areas and industrialized countries.
