Eloheh Indigenous Center for Earth Justice Partnership


EcoFaith Recovery is cultivating a deeper relationship with Eloheh Indigenous Center for Earth Justice (Randy and Edith Woodley) in order to enhance Eloheh’s capacity while engaging EcoFaith leaders and their communities in learning and practicing a more holistic worldview. 
In the coming months you will have rich opportunities to:
  • Engage your community in a deep conversation and study of Randy’s new book Becoming Rooted: One Hundred Days of Reconnecting with Sacred Earth (pre-order now)
  • Gather with other Oregon EcoFaith folks every third Tuesday in IPL/EMO Green Circles. (You may additionally gather on first Tuesdays for Reckoning with Racism, if desired)
  • Dive deep with a Lenten devotional as a companion to Becoming Rooted, tailored to a Christian context dealing with such themes as land acknowledgement, repentance, taking responsibility for participation in domination systems such as white supremacy,  the legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery, etc.
  • Volunteer at Eloheh Farm and learn from Eloheh’s regenerative agricultural practices. The next opportunity will be Feb. 26, 9:00-3:00. We’ll prepare the farm for spring planting. Stay tuned for more details closer to the date.
  • and more!

National – Journey Through Lent with the Companion Devotional to Becoming Rooted

A Grounded Faith: Reconnecting with Creator and Creation in the Season of Lent

A Grounded Faith is designed to be a Lenten companion to Becoming Rootedalthough 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.
