Often, our emphasis on the unseen and spiritual dimensions of life have caused us to devalue the physical world—our bodies, our earth. But, God said a forever “Yes!” to the goodness of creation in Jesus. In this age of violence toward the earth and toward bodies we consider “other,” we need to reclaim the beloved-ness of the embodied life. Through creative writing and experiential exercises we will write the body back into our common life.
