Just Food: A Rocha 2011 Environment Resource Pack

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 a way of bringing God’s Kingdom values of justice and restored relationships into our lives.

Home: A Rocha 2013 Environment Resource Pack

Where is your home? The Bible actually says that God’s home will be with humanity, and God calls us to put down roots and bear good fruit in the places where we’ve been planted. This 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.
