Jeff Stein, director of Arcosanti in Arizona, sent a note of congratulations to us as we prepare to dedicate the solar panel system this Sunday. He quotes Thomas Berry, a Roman Catholic priest and eco-theologian (d. 2009). http://www.arcosanti.org.
“We might summarize our present human situation by the simple statement: In the 20th century (now the 21st), the glory of the human has become the desolation of the Earth. And now, the desolation of the Earth is becoming the destiny of the human. From here on, the primary judgement of all human institutions, professions, programs and activities will be determined by the extent to which they inhibit, ignore or foster a mutually enhancing human-Earth relationship.”
“THE NEW STORY: Comments on the Origin, Identification and Transmission of Values.”
I send this to you because this is what the community is doing at Peace with its solar project: beginning to foster a mutually enhancing human-Earth relationship.
