Encountering the Spirit in Agrarian Ministries

Sarah Mast (SSW ‘23) and spouse Greg Mast dream of leading an affirming, land-based liturgical community. They used grant funds to visit seven faith-based agrarian communities during summer ’22: Good Courage Farm in Hutchinson, MN; Plainsong Farm in Rockford, MI; Bellweather Farm in Wakeman, OH; Adamah Farm in Falls Village, CT; Mission Farm in Killington, VT; Heartberry Hollow in Randolph, VT; and Soul Fire Farm in Petersburgh, NY. These visits provided a rich experience of the mission of each farm and inspired them to engage others in agrarian worship.

They have offered two farm liturgies at their family farm near Austin, with the third planned for November ’22.
