In our Christian Tradition God made ADAM from ADAMAH. Adam is not the name of the first human but literally means earthling; its is a description of a species. ADAMAH is the Hebrew word for earth. We are deeply connected to the earth as our Mother, as our source and substance. If we engaged the World as being from the Earth, then instead of seeking to bend the Earth to our will, we would be aligned with the earth and its seasons with compassion and justice.
