Francis of Assisi is the saint most closely identified with caring for and celebrating the things of the earth. This book takes both a theological and practical approach to developing a Franciscan spirituality of the earth. Four sections focus on: the relationship between the earth as Gods creation and Jesus as the Incarnation of God; the implication of Francis Canticle of Creation for our time; the role of contemplative prayer as a key to discovering Francis awe and respect for creation; and conversion in the Franciscan tradition. Each section offers reflective action opportunities designed to bring the books ecological and theological insights into the readers daily life and nurture a Franciscan spirituality of the earth. Prayers, meditations, spiritual practices and group activities are offered which provide a practical, hands-on approach to reconnecting with the earth and acting in right relationship.
