In this episode we speak to farmer Ali Birkett and author Steve Aisthorpe. They are both involved in consulting churches for mission and development, and they are both passionate about nature. They explore a range of views around metaphors we can draw from the natural world, such as seasons, leaving the ground fallow, and re-wilding, and how these images speak to our experiences of rest in life and in the church.
