Why we left the “a” out of the name, Center for New Creation

Posted April 9th, 2015 in Blog, Featured, New Creation News Comments Off on Why we left the “a” out of the name, Center for New Creation

New creation is not a “thing” we make. It is an act, on ongoing unfolding. We create – like an artist before a canvas, or a writer, pen and journal in hand.

A deeper commitment to big changes in our lives and our culture is required if we hope to create a different future than this one.

The Ecology of Economic Growth

Posted January 22nd, 2014 in Blog, Featured, Zine 1 Comment

Economic growth within the model of the global economy has an ecology to which we are all connected, a model driven by the logic of consumption. But rather than a model of “growth,” it is a model of depletion and diminishment, of “using up.” It is the logic of this way of life that must be changed fundamentally if we are to have a future at all.
