“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” – Matthew 13:31-32
The land that our churches inhabit is holy land. The seeds we sow—both literally and metaphorically—can flourish into beautiful hubs of life and diversity long after we leave. In a time of climate crisis, church lands can be a powerful force of resilience and refuge. On this webinar, you’ll hear inspiring stories of land regeneration, transformation, and adaptation in the face of the storm of the climate crisis, and gain some tools to leverage your own church land for climate resilience. Join us in sowing the seeds that some day, like a mustard seed, might grow into a hub of life.
