You are There: Restoring Churches, People, and Places is a pastoral conversation about creation care. It is a pastoral voice shepherding Christian people in Christian churches towards discipleship that is all the way down to the dirt. In it you will find a pastor with time to talk with you and walk with you so that the fruit of the redemption earned by Jesus' life, death, and resurrection will make a real and substantial difference in your very own backyard.
This book is not actually about you; it's about us as local churches. Each local church should care about its place because the church is where God uses the gospel to restore people, and God's restored people restore both people and places. This is what we mean by creation care.
You, church, are a gathering of people defined by your faith in Jesus and the dirt you walk on. You are a people sent to that place. This is why it is good news that you are there.
