Lenten Post February 15th

On the heels of yesterday's reminder to live in the moment comes an even more important one that we need to think of our lives and our world in a long-term, sustainable manner.

The problem, simply put, is this: Long-term thinking is for the most part alien to the American mind. We have to change that. ...... If we ignore that reality and continue to degrade the world that gave us birth by extinguishing natural ecosystems and species, we will permanently harm ourselves. By cutting away our own roots, we risk losing the dream of sustainable development. Edward O. Wilson (From The Atlantic, November 2007)

As we move through Lent how are you addressing sustainability in your world? How about your spiritual sustainability?
