In the one hundred days leading up to Earth Day 2022, congregations and individuals around the nation will be participating in a unique journey with transformative potential. Randy Woodley—recognized Cherokee descendant, writer, professor and co-sustainer of Eloheh Farm and Indigenous Center for Earth Justice in Yamhill, OR—will lead us on this journey with his forthcoming book, Becoming Rooted: One Hundred Days of Reconnecting with Sacred Earth. Inspired by indigenous wisdom, Becoming Rooted invites us to live out a deeply spiritual relationship with the whole community of Creation and with Creator.

A Grounded Faith is designed to be a Lenten companion to Becoming Rooted, although it can also be used as a stand-alone Lenten resource. The devotional invites participants to reconnect with our Creator and with Creation as a core dimension of Christian practice. Journey with the authors through 40 days of exploring Lenten themes of sin, confession, repentance, renewal, the way of the cross, and the miracle of the resurrection in dialogue with Scripture and an indigenous worldview. Experience different visions of what “a grounded faith” looks like as a path towards a decolonized discipleship and a holistic, place-based worldview.
