A spiritual activism on behalf of the environment

For city dwellers the farming and wilderness imagery of the Bible may sometimes require interpretation. But for Sancy Childs, who with her husband and teenage daughters has a farm with farm-related cottage industries in Australia, the Bible offers a very immediate and practical guide. She finds it gives her a clearer understanding of the spiritual laws governing the universe. Here she speaks of how study of the Bible and active prayer have helped in her work at the farm as well as for the community and environment where they live.

Many people think coming to the country is going to be all beauty and peace, but you get challenged right away! When I first came to the farm my husband had developed before we were married, there was a drought that had been in effect for a few years. At first I was overwhelmed at what seemed to be the dire necessity for rain because we needed to feed our animals. We have about a thousand Angora goats, which we shear for their mohair, beef cattle, plus various other farm animals.
