As well as life coaching, creative project management, tea making, and helping run the popular ReJesus website, Bruce Stanley has also helped pioneer the Forest Church movement. So we thought he was the man to ask how to connect with God through nature.

Forest Church: A Field Guide to Nature Connection for Groups and Individuals


“What’s unique, I suppose, about forest church is that we’re actually going to participate with nature. Instead of just doing what you could have been doing inside and moving it outside, we’re actually trying to bring nature into what we’re doing so that nature becomes part of the conversation, part of the inspiration.”

“I am really trying to do something. It isn’t to rewrite Christianity. It’s to get people to connect with nature enough so that they’re changed at a deeper level, because I think the big crisis – the big motivation for me being involved – is to get people more in touch with nature so that we treat it better. That seems to me to be the big crisis of our time.”
