We are all both soil (terra) and spirit (numa) – earth enlivened by the breathe of God, made in His image. But for far too long it has become common in our modern culture to separate these two aspects of our life (the spiritual and the bodily) – and we end up living a ‘dis-integrated’, disembodied life.
Jesus presented another way. He taught his disciples to pray: “Our Father who is in heaven, holy is Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…”. Jesus taught a living faith in God that was literally ‘down to earth’.
Our vision for Terra Numa is to advance whole-life, embodied Christian faith in a generation struggling to rightly see Jesus’ vision for shalom (wholeness) that he came to bring through His life, death, and resurrection. The Scriptures speak of God’s purpose to one day ‘restore all things’ at the end of this age. What does this mean? How do we live into this restoration? How much of it can we taste now? These are the questions at the foremost of our minds and hearts.
