Home: Sermon

The following sermon is based on Jeremiah 29:4–11 and addresses our culture’s rootlessness, linked to the desire to continually look over the horizon for ‘the next move’, for ‘a better place’. It emphasizes the biblical call that most of us need to hear: to stay put and deepen our roots in the places God has put us.

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.
