What does new creation look like? I don’t have the answer. I have the invitation into the journey that leads us there. We will make this path by walking it – together – in community. Photo: Thomas Frank

Climate change is not the problem, but a symptom of the problem. The essence of the ecological crisis is the way in which we are in relationship with Nature, and that is what we need to change fundamentally. Evolution occurs from within and that is now being manifested in local communities working to defend their places, creating new ecological cultures in the process. This is what can carry us into a new era of life within the planet. More on how this project is responding to burgeoning new creation.
Carbon dioxide levels just reached their highest levels in 800,000 years, maybe in millions of years. We are living within a different planet now. We will not save ourselves from crisis anymore, but we can still decide how bad it’s going to get – and what kind of world we want to create as the old unravels.
We are reaching a point of critical tension where something has to give. The world is facing challenges as vast as any faced before in our history. The reality of change and the resistance to change is now fraught with tension and threat. The burgeoning grassroots movements rising up in defense of “place,” of home, of eco-communities, of the Earth, is the human’s ecological response to crisis. It is also the place where hope is burgeoning, creating along the way the kind of work that can remake the world.
