“The nature of [the climate] crisis could be summed up rather dramatically by saying that it’s a loss of a sense for what life is. I don’t mean the ‘meaning of life’ in the normal way we use that phrase. I mean a sense of life as the web of interactions, mutual givings and receiving, that makes up the world we inhabit. Seeing this more clearly helps us dismantle the strange fictions we create about ourselves as human beings. We are disconnected and we need to be reintroduced to life.”
We’ll read selected excerpts from the former ABC’s book, view a short video or two, look at some Biblical and other wisdom, and share our ideas with each other.
