Embracing sound guiding principles

What a delightful page 1 on Monday!

I love the picture and the idea of people who like to fish taking care of the problem of the Asian carp. Someone had a beautiful and fun idea.

Saturday, I attended a workshop at St. Mary-of-the-Woods titled “Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream.” It asked participants to wake up from the dream of materialism and destruction of the environment we get into by considering everything in the environment as our resources.

So I was delighted to see the next step forward in the city’s wastewater treatment. It seems to me one of the myths that we are told is “government is our enemy” rather than “government of the people by the people.” Certainly this project will benefit all people in the Terre Haute area and help to clean our river.

The workshop at St. Mary’s had the following purpose: “I am committed to bringing forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just human presence on this planet as the guiding principle of our times.”

As a teacher of prayer, I love all those three dimensions being united.
