I invite you into restoring the waters, where we have conversations about this journey of life. We strive to find answers and keep putting our ideas into the world. The invitation is community-wide. We keep on writing, keep on protesting, and keep on participating in changing our world for the better. Whatever ways you are able to participate, the invitation is to keep on striving forward. We're all in, the human and more than human community. We all need each other, we breath, eat, drink one another and live by one another's contributions. Come join us on this magnificent journey!

Any One Thing Hitched to Every Other Thing

By Caroline | August 30, 2018 | 0 Comments

There are three things on my mind today, and like everything, they are interconnected. To be truthful, there are more than three things on my mind, but during this ecological travesty that will define and serve as the legacy of this president, administration, and congress, any more than three – and that’s a stretch –…

Change is Coming

By Caroline | July 1, 2018 | 1 Comment

Dear Friends, For a long time I had thought I might be able to navigate an ecological path without tripping over the obstacles of politics and religion. I was wrong. Not only are the members of the earth community, including humans, interconnected and interdependent, so also are the institutions of human endeavor; they cannot be…

Earth Day ~ Sense of Place XI

By Caroline | April 18, 2018 | 0 Comments

It is a very good thing to celebrate Earth Day. Any time people are encouraged to spend time outdoors is an opportunity for breathing and healing. Being outdoors can be a mystical experience, quite beyond a “task oriented” proposition. Earth Day then, need not be a call to action, for example, environmental clean-up. Earth Day…

Kibble Walks ~ Sense of Place Part X

By Caroline | March 24, 2018 | 0 Comments

             I am often asked by people who have read my most recent book, The God Presumption, if I really gift the bark of trees with dog kibble. Yes I do, even in the coldest of our New Hampshire winters; on my return from the early morning walk, I sometimes require half an hour in…

Ray Charles and His Gift of America

By Caroline | July 4, 2017 | 0 Comments

The 4th of July holiday has always been a difficult one for me, for reasons I will name below. But because of the public nature of my work, I have never been able to pretend it away. During the many years I was an active clergy person, and despite underground grumbles of “separation of church…

White Pines, Slugs, And a Wayfinding

By Caroline | June 28, 2017 | 1 Comment

Before I address the fact that I’ve not posted in a long time, I want to share a story. My three rescue dogs and I walk through our woodlands three times a day, maybe four, maybe more, depending on how the day is unfolding. We walk through a predominantly white pine forest, with some birch,…

To Know Them By Name

By Caroline | February 24, 2017 | 1 Comment

The early 14th century Sufi poet Hafiz writes: Listen to the music. I am the concert that flows from the mouth of every creature, singing with the myriad chords. The story from The Daily Good to which this verse was attached was titled Singing to Tomatoes, and it caught my fancy. I am enthralled with…

Citizen of Earth

By Caroline | February 15, 2017 | 0 Comments

Francis Bellamy was a Christian socialist minister ousted from his own pulpit for espousing Jesus as a socialist, and preaching against the evils of capitalism. Maybe this is new news for some of us, but Bellamy’s original version of The Pledge of Allegiance was intended for citizens of any country. I pledge allegiance to my…

Eco-Justice and Social Justice, Entangled

By Caroline | July 30, 2016 | 2 Comments

I have said many times in my writings and teaching that it is not possible to address the issue of human social justice without embedding it in the broader concept of eco-justice. Not is it possible to address the issue of human diversity without embedding it in the concept of biodiversity. The reason I say…
