Adapting Christian Spirituality and Practice for Life on an Altered Planet

A conversation with: 
Dr. Debra Rienstra

Hosted by:
Forrest Inslee and James Amadon
7:00-8:00 PM (PDT)

 Join Forrest Inslee and James Amadon for a conversation with Dr. Debra Rienstra, author of the recent book Refugia Faith. We will talk with Dr. Rienstra about creating “refugia,” places of shelter where life endures in times of crisis. We will explore how this biological reality can extend to human culture and faith, helping us create communities of refugia that endure, expand, and connect in ways that help new forms of life emerge.

Her other books include Great with Child: On Becoming a Mother, So Much More: An Invitation to Christian Spirituality, and Worship Words: Discipling Language for Faithful Ministry.
