A Grounded Faith was inspired by Randy Woodley’s book, Becoming Rooted: One Hundred Days of Reconnecting with Sacred Earth. EcoFaith Recovery designed a Lenten devotional which can be used as a companion to Becoming Rooted or as a stand-alone resource. The devotional invites participants to reconnect with our Creator and with Creation as a core dimension of Christian practice. Seven authors from diverse backgrounds will lead readers through the 40 days of Lent with Scripture, excerpts from Randy’s book, reflections, and suggested practices.
