Coming Labor Day Week – a new website of, by, and for the communities of “new” creation.
Posts Tagged ‘ecological hope’
More and more, people are turning from the emptiness of individualism to a rediscovery of the meaning of community, not only with other humans, but with communities of sentient and non-sentient beings within which we are embedded. We know now that our human fate is bound to the fate of the living systems of the planet. That is not just a fact, it is a discovery with deep ethical and spiritual dimensions. We want to take our part in building that community.
Re-inventing the Center for New Creation can only be done in community – because that’s how “creation” works
Whether or not there is hope depends on what we do now…as we form community based in friendship, conviviality, humility, shared risk, play, and even joy, we will already be on our way to moving beyond what is causing all these collapses to creating the news ways of life that can one day emerge out of the old.
We are re-inventing this project to make way for some New Creation. In the midst of ecological crisis, that is what is rising up in the midst of it. Hope is a verb, it’s what we do, not a thing to be possessed as if it can exist apart from what we do. In that sense it is in our hands. And helping to empower and share the stories of new creation will be our project in the days ahead. But we sure can use your support to realize this new dream.
