I am published! Rooted and Rising: Voices of Courage in a Time of Climate Crisis

There is a new book in the world and it is bursting with wisdom, insight, and hope.

Rooted and Rising is for everyone who worries about the climate crisis and seeks spiritual practices and perspectives to renew their capacity for compassionate, purposeful, and joyful action.

Leah Schade and Margaret Bullitt-Jonas gather twenty-one faith leaders, scientists, community organizers, theologians, and grassroots climate activists to offer wisdom for fellow pilgrims grappling with the weight of climate change. Acknowledging the unprecedented nature of our predicament—the fact that climate disruption is unraveling the web of life and threatening the end of human civilization—the authors share their stories of grief and hope, fear and faith. Together, the essays, introductory sections, and discussion questions reveal that our present crisis can elicit a depth of wisdom, insight, and motivation with power to guide us toward a more peaceful, just, and Earth-honoring future.

Dr. Natasha DeJarnett

In addition to the co-editors, some of my favorite climate action figure appear in the book including Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Dr. Natasha DeJarnett, and Corina Newsome.

I write a piece called: Not Our First Rodeo, Imagination & Memory Stir Up Hope. I look at the amazing fierce activism of early HIV/AIDS as a model for how to take on the climate crisis.

If you are a minister, climate advocate, and someone looking to deepen your storehouse of hope, check out Rooted and Rising: Voices of Courage in a Time of Climate Crisis.
