Ecology and faith

When studying for my masters I got the chance to spend a couple of days with Alastair McIntosh. We were lucky enough to have have him lead a workshop on Sustainable Development and his experiences in campaigning in the Western Isles of Scotland. Although this is now six years ago and counting, it has stuck with me. I have since read his book ‘Soil and Soul’ ( and often go back to it for snippets of inspiration and general mind bending craziness. Even if you’re not into the whole redemptive side of ecological stewardship, there is a story here about transformational change against the odds.

Alistair will be speaking in Belfast at Fitzroy Presbyterian on the 28th of February. Get it booked into the diary. Click here on Steve Stockmans blog for more information (
