Reroot, Rewild, Retell

Broadcast on August 19, 2022
With Sophie Strand
Hosted by Mike Morrell

The Jesus of the New Testament is far removed from the wandering rabbi that healed and told stories on the Galilean seaside. He has been translated into the very language of the Empire that assassinated him, deracinated from his native tongue, his Judaism, his political context, and, most importantly, from the ecology that intimately informed his teachings. Sophie Strand asks, how does rerooting Jesus in his ecology and his Galilean community give us a glimpse of someone much more environmentally radical?

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • The power of ecologically contextual myth
  • Jesus as the fruiting body of a mythic mycelium of vegetal gods
  • How to look for our own ecological parables
