We are formed by the people around us and the places we occupy. By reading the words of those wiser than myself I hope to extract unique, contextual insight into our relationship with the natural world. Once we develop a healthy understanding of how to care for the places we call home, we can begin caring for one another.

    Hope & Direction

    Often life can seem uncertain and in this time of forced rest, due to this pandemic, we have time to reflect and give thanks.  Use this time to rest and evaluate what matters in this life.

    A Narrative for the Future

    A Narrative for the Future

    This is the 50th episode! Thank you all for listening and enduring my inconsistency. For this momentous episode, I read an excerpt from Wendell Berry's essay called "One being asked for A Narrative for the Future." I also dive into my reasoning and motivation for why I create this show. I hope to continue these conversations and would love to hear from you.

    The Role of Creatures

    The Role of Creatures

    The reading this week is "The Canticle of Creation" by Saint Francis of Assisi. I also look at a brief excerpt from Richard Bauckham's book "Living with other Creatures" and provide a few of my thoughts pertaining to how we understand other creatures on earth. What roles do they play and how does it impact our lives? 

    I hope you enjoy the show! It would be wonderful if you left a positive review wherever you listen or share your favourite episode with a friend. If you have any comments or questions, email me at ecologyandexist@gmail.com.
