Faith Again - Ben Abbott - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Andi that was wonderful.
I second that!
Jump into the conversation any time, Joe Bennion! Your vision is invaluable.
So, how do we hope? Who see the hope? Anyone?
Ben, what's the best way we can speak out against the Utah Lake artificial-islands project? Letters to our state legislator? Something else?
Conserve Utah Valley is leading the charge. Donate or volunteer. You can also go to utahlake.byu.edu to learn about the lake.
Ben, the Church is one of the country’s largest cattle ranchers. Considering your comment about W of W and meat eating and the map you showed about the amount of land use to feed the animals, do you see a shift in this practice?
Tiffany, please email me or Jay any photos or images of these women. Maybe, Jay, we can put together an email to all later full of these links to various articles, music, organizations so that we all can likewise share this Christmas message with our wider circle of friends and family members. I would LOVE to share these thoughts as our Christmas wish and message with all.
Sure! would love to connect you folks with these beautiful mama farmers. Very exciting opportunities
Hope is real power, Andi!
Hope is the enemy of despair :)
Thank you. I would also LOVE to include one or two of Kathryn’s favorite poems on the Divine Feminine!!
Xeriscape those lawns, people.
Loving this conversation. I have nothing to add except a shameless plug of Bristlecone Firesides, the blog and podcast I run about spirituality and the Earth. A number of the people here have been guests including Kathryn and Tiffany.
Rain Scald: Poemsby Tacey M. Atsitty is one of my favorite Mormon Navajo poet and her book is stunning!https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35953663-rain-scald
Steve Peck, where do you see the intersection of art/poetry and hope and creating a new vantage, vision of activism and ecology?
Thanks Madison for your contribution to cultivating a healthy ecology through dialogue and awareness

Doctrine and Covenants 130:8–9Doctrine and Covenants8 The place where God resides is a great Urim and Thummim.9 This earth, in its sanctified and immortal state, will be made like unto crystal and will be a Urim and Thummim to the inhabitants who dwell thereon, whereby all things pertaining to an inferior kingdom, or all kingdoms of a lower order, will be manifest to those who dwell on it; and this earth will be Christ’s.

I think Joe Bennion is raising his hand.

I love that nature is so nonconfrontational. It just lets you come as you are and be immersed in this beautiful world that, for me, is such a peaceful reminder of God's love and patience.
If anyone is interested, you can join us in the Utah Net Zero Consortium where we swap ideas soon local practices and how to live smarter, consume less, collaborate more. www.utahnetzero.coom
that metaphor about the leaf blower sounds about how my todo list is going.
Can someone cobble together some quotes from rush Limbaugh or glenn beck to pitch these ideas? We need some cultural camouflage
Even the word “stewards” is so difficult and hierarchal to me. Is there a better term we can adapt, such as Environmental Servants? I believe if we imagine the commandment to serve, we change our positionally. Servants, serve this divine being of earth.
Kathrine Hayhoe's book Saving Us is great on this
Link to his Brian’s work.
