Eco-Justice Notes
The E-mail Commentary from Eco-Justice Ministries

God Joins the Web of Life
distributed 12/24/14 - ©2014

Dieter Hessel reminds us to stretch our thinking at Christmas. Writing in a chapter titled "A Theology of Deep Incarnation and Reconciliation", he says:

"We begin our reading of the Gospel with the incarnation. ... God becomes flesh, the Creator becomes clay, the Word becomes Earth. The Word incarnate has all the elements of a human body. ... In Jesus, God joins the web of life, becomes part of Earth's biology."

In the celebration of Christmas, may we find -- and create -- grace and good news for the whole web of life.

Eco-Justice Ministries wishes you, and your community, hope and joy in the coming days of celebration and reflection.

Shalom!

Peter Sawtell
Executive Director

In 2014, Christmas and New Years both fall on Thursday, which puts our normal Friday distibution of Eco-Justice Notes on a day when we hope you're not checking your email. One end-of-the-year meditation will be sent out on Tuesday, December 30.
