Be on the lookout! Activist theologian and biblical scholar Ched Myers announced the upcoming debut of his edited anthology, “Watershed Discipleship: Reinhabiting Bioregional Faith and Ethic.” The book includes more than 15 different authors and is set to be published by Cascade Books. “Watershed Discipleship” ventures beyond Creation Care as it takes into account education, advocacy and organizing to “learn, love and save real places.” It recognizes we are in a watershed moment and that we as Christians must “choose between denial and discipleship.” This book explores the grassroots initiatives people of faith are enacting and engaging in with regards to watershed discipleship in their areas.

I think clouds love the prairie
Even small clouds
With the sun behind you 
You can cast a shadow to be seen for miles and miles. 

I think clouds love the prairie
If they are part of a storm they can be watched for hours or minutes as they come closer and closer 
And when they do 
They can drop their rain in sheets
Sometimes not even making it from the high sky to the ground 
That in its dryness 
Reaches up for the rain....
