There is less evidence of preachers consciously reflecting with the church they serve on the ways in which they experience God in their setting including their natural environment and local culture. In Lewis County, New York, for example, many people continue to reside here because of its proximity to the northern wilderness. Many hunt and/or fish. Others are hikers or ride horses or engage in other outdoors activities. Many live in the forest as a conscious choice, and in all of this there is often enough a spiritual component to their decision to live in or near the wilderness. It is quite possible to speak of a "north country spirituality," which spirituality should inform the content of preaching in north country churches and from time to time be addressed directly.
In many locales, there would be a combination of local theologies and spiritualities, such as a farm country spirituality that combines with a Great Plains theology or a hillbilly theology. An urban theology could well also encompass black theology or hispanic spirituality perhaps in tandem with a North Atlantic costal theology. The larger point here is that we always experience God through our culture, local history, and natural environment and that fact should be incorporated into local preaching in a conscious way. Amen.
