Sustainable Traditions first began as an online forum around 2007 with a focus on the intersection of sustainable living and ‘whole-life’ discipleship to Jesus. In 2008 Sustainable Traditions transitioned from an online forum to a multi-authored blog, The conversation has explored ways of living and thinking that encompass both practical and theological realities – with a focus on the future of human society, Creation and the Body of Christ.
We’ve taken the vision for a more embodied and intentional expression of Christian faith to various venues over the past several years – including the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics (at Washington University) and Liberty University on multiple occasions.
The long-term dream is to develop Sustainable Traditions into a print magazine, resource platform and missional network – helping to inspire and equip down-to-earth Christian communities in America and beyond.
LAND & TABLE
Land and Table was born with the express purpose of helping to network and build up the local food movement in the Lynchburg, Virginia regional area. Beginning as a monthly networking/skillsharing potluck that has met monthly for around four years, Land and Table has helped influence local food policy and economic development leadership, and has been featured in local media such as Lynchburg Living and the News and Advance.
The ongoing vision for Land and Table is to continue monthly networking potlucks, establish a series of skillshare workshops, fundraise in 2017, and begin working on a local buyers guide publication as well as an online directory that will be part of a new local marketing platform for small-scale, sustainable farms and independent food entrepreneurs.
