For 27 years, Ghost Ranch has hosted leaders in the Church, international affairs, politics and social justice organizations in annual discussion regarding moral issues facing church and society. This year we build on the theme bringing together biologists, a poet and medical anthropologist, musicians, theologians, educators and community leaders. To paraphrase an argument made in 1968 by Senegalese environmentalist Baba Dioum, we won’t save places we don’t love; we can’t love places we don’t know, and we don’t know places we haven’t learned. A symbiotic, relational ethos of watershed literacy and stewardship is crucial to the survival and flourishing of traditional societies. Watershed Discipleship is a “triple entendre” that recognizes we are in a watershed historical moment of crisis, focuses on our intrinsically bioregional locus as followers of Jesus, and urges us to become disciples of our watersheds.”  ~ Ched Myers, 2016
