How does ‘regenerative’ apply to the Bible?

Have you ever had that experience when you hear a new term or concept and suddenly it’s everywhere? That’s what is happening to me with “regenerative.”

For example, “regenerative farming” is a new idea a friend recently shared with me. It is used by farmers and ranchers to build healthy soil and grow climate-resilient communities.

I forwarded the blog on to a scholar friend who is currently working on a regenerative land practices study in the MidWest and the Northeast.

All of the Bible stories you mentioned help me stay in a prayerful stature while warlike attacks are permeating the airwaves.

Thanks Maddie, that was very uplifting and revealing. I loved the three stories you shared for each of those individuals were indeed regenerated.

My prayers for Ukraine include that this same powerful, inclusive love guiding and protecting, be known and felt.
