Leah Schade and Margaret Bullitt-Jonas have curated a powerful anthology. Their new work offers weary-hearted readers tools to cope with the grief and despair of climate work, encourages persistence in taking action, and motivates bearing witness to the vision of a more just and sustainable future. . . . By collecting these various stories and voices, Schade and Bullitt-Jonas provide the reader with a sense of relief through an unburdening of adopted identities or purposes and asks how can you in your specific life add to this movement? What roots you in this work? How can you stand firmly and deeply in your own soil and rise to meet the both nourishing and harsh conditions these people face in working toward a better world? Anyone in a faith-based organization interested in this work would be wise to read this book and share in community to discern how you are best able to root yourself in this challenging and life-giving work.
