Abstract
This article introduces Masowe Apostles as an environment-conscious movement whose rituals and religious language tie experiences of marginality and suffering to ideas of barrenness and infertility, while good fortune and blessings related to giving birth and nurturing life give expression to a way of understanding God as the source and protector of life. Students of religion will find in Masowe Apostle teaching the foundations of an eco-theology supported by ritual behavior which communicates religious truth through symbols suggesting the immanence of God as a healing power.
