• How to build resilience in local communities and evangelize the millennial generation
• An ecology of renewal and resurrection for today's church

Resurrection Matters is a fruitful study and action guide for any church institution that owns property and in which groups gather together to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. It helps groups connect their faith and the assets that they steward for God's mission, recognizing these assets as gifts for ministry with their wider community. It encourages theological reflection and practical action for renewal for the church, greater biodiversity for the planet, and relief for the poor.

Audience: lay leaders (vestries, etc.), clergy, environmental activists, Christian Food movement, community gardeners, those involved (diocesan, parish) with property oversight, evangelism teams.

Nurya Love Parish is co-founder of Plainsong Farm, a farm-based ministry  in greater Grand Rapids, Michigan, and is responsible for stewardship of the property her family owns, so she is deeply familiar with the practical implications of taking stewardship seriously. A member of the Episcopal Church’s Advisory Council for the Stewardship of Creation, Parish convenes the Province V Regional Consultive Group created by General Convention 2015’s A030 resolution. As a member of the Diocese of Western Michigan’s Diocesan Council and chair of her deanery, she understands the challenges of church renewal today. She has 20 years of ministry experience, 10 within the Episcopal Church.
