Publisher's Description

The starting point for In Deep Waters: Spiritual Care for Young People in a Climate Crisis is not news: the world as we know it is shifting. Several millennia of climate stability have come to an abrupt end.

But, observes Talitha Amadea Aho, the young people of today do not remember stability. They see the world through crisis-colored glasses. Climate change is creating a spiritual emergency that is hitting their generation harder than any other.

Today's climate crisis calls people of faith to a communal spiritual practice of care, especially for those who are more vulnerable because of their youth--the children, youth, and young adults of Generation Z. We must learn how to offer spiritual care that is informed by the spiritual-ecological crisis of their generation.

This book will help you keep young people at the center of your community and listen to the troubles they have to share. Whether you are a Gen Z peer or a caring adult of any other generation, In Deep Waters will show you how to offer ecologically informed spiritual care.

We all need to do it today; we cannot wait until one of today's youngest generations grows up.

Editorial Reviews

"I love this book. . . . Aho is a beautiful writer, teacher, and ally of the young--wise and tender and tough. If you love young people and the earth, this might be the most important book you read this year." --Anne Lamott, author of Almost Everything: Notes on Hope

"In Deep Waters is a masterfully written guide both for the younger generation as they grapple with spiritual questions . . . and for those of us in older generations who need a reminder of the magnitude of the crisis we're facing and guidance on how to care well for the next generation." --Brandan Robertson, author of Filled to Be Emptied: The Path to Liberation for Privileged People

"In Deep Waters clearly and evocatively captures the complexities of growing up on the edge of apocalypse--with all the spiritual, emotional, and mental turmoil that entails." --Zoe Jonick, youth climate activist and organizer
