Many Christians have been taught that our ‘real’ home is in heaven. Yet, the Bible actually says that God’s home will be with humanity (Revelation 21:3), and God calls us to put down roots and bear good fruit in the places where we’ve been planted.
A Rocha’s 2013 Environment Resource Pack on Home provides resources for churches to celebrate their local area – the human and wildlife communities they share it with – and to seek ways to be involved in caring for their homes.

All of A Rocha UK's Associated Projects are involved with protecting or planting trees or forests, and A Rocha International’s Tropical Forests Programme links several international projects. In fact our human lives are dependent on trees in multiple ways.
The Bible also starts and finishes with trees – in the Garden of Eden and in the heavenly-earthly City. In between, Jesus’ death on a tree expresses our misuse of God’s creation as well as God’s wonderful saving plans for people and all creation.

Food is God’s gift in creation, but today it’s often either cheap junk, grabbed on-the-run, or an ethical nightmare and a cause of injustice and suffering.
This pack aims to help you reclaim a biblical understanding of food – as something at the centre of our lives – a source of celebration and joy – and also as a way of bringing God’s Kingdom values of justice and restored relationships into our lives.

This Environment Resource Pack takes its name from Psalm 104:24 which says (The Message Bible): 'What a Wildly Wonderful World'! God you made it all, with Wisdom at your side,made earth overflow with your wonderful creations.
2010 was the UN’s International Year of Biodiversity so it was a great time to focus on the incredible beauty and complexity of nature, on how it can be a springboard to worship, and on how we can glorify God by caring for biodiversity locally and globally.

"Jesus and the Earth" has been chosen as a theme to link with the book of the same name by Bishop James Jones of Liverpool. Bishop James, and his publishers SPCK, have kindly agreed to the use of the name, and to short extracts from the book being used.
This pack is therefore slimmer than in recent years, as it is expected that people will buy the book and use it as a reference. A short review of the book follows inside the pack.
Any mistakes contained in this pack are the responsibility of the pack's author, Revd. Dave Bookless, and not of Bishop James Jones or SPCK.
