It should be a required bible study for all Christian faiths. The author just doesn't theorize about making
a difference, he does it. Without being too preachy he honestly brings to light the lack of involvement of
Christian Churches when it comes to environmental issues. Environmental issues are food issues.
We are all in this together and he clearly connects the dots for us.
Highly recommended not only to read but to discuss, reflect and put into practice.
Growing much of their own food ( including chickens) was a new way of life that led to growing a garden and getting acquainted with farmers and orchardists of the area. Starting a community farmer's market, brought many others on board. The family drew closer as they adhered to their year's plan to live simply. The Thailand trip seemed extraneous but interesting. The author intersperses the chapters with meditations, homilies, humor, and wisdom, and overall the book was a delightful read.
They came up against problems that I didn't even consider could happen.
I think more people should try to do experiments such as these.
We need to take a bigger look at how we are affecting our environment on a personal level every day.
