Featuring emerging voices from a generation that has grown up under the shadow of climate catastrophe, this collection of essays introduces and explores 'watershed discipleship' as a critical, contextual, and constructive approach to ecological theology and practice. Watershed Discipleship feature more than a dozen activists, educators, and practitioners under the age of forty, whose work and witness attest to a growing movement of resistance and reimagination across North America. This anthology recognizes we are in a watershed historical moment of crisis, focuses on our intrinsically bioregional locus as followers of Jesus, and urges us to become disciples of our watersheds.
Contributors reread both biblical texts and churchly practices (such as mission, baptism, and liturgy) through the lens of 're-place-ment.' Herein is a comprehensive and engaged call for a 'Transition church' that can help turn our history around toward environmental resiliency and social justice, by passionate advocates on the front lines of watershed discipleship.
Contributors: Sasha Adkins, Jay Beck, Tevyn East, Erinn Fahey, Katerina Friesen, Matt Humphrey, Vickie Machado, Jonathan McRay, Sarah Nolan, Reyna Ortega, Dave Pritchett, Erynn Smith, Sarah Thompson, Lydia Wylie-Kellermann
