On October 21st,on the 3rd night of the Series Earth and Spirit at St Anselm's the Victoria based activist and author Guy Dauncey spoke about working together and having vision. The title of his talk was "On Our Future: The Song of the Universe". Guy speaks from his heart. He marries spirituality, science and vision. He spoke of the need to connect with one another locally in our neighourhoods and the strategy of focusing on one area of ecological justice so we can bring the depth of that to the wider community including politicians as we seek to make necessary and valuable change for the common good. He spoke of the cooperative economy and Benefit Corporations who work within a socially conscious framework as well as having a profit. Having vision is essential as it is the strongest motivator for change.
The Eco-Justice Unit gathered folks together over a meal before hand to build relationships and connect around ecological justice.
Anyone is welcome to come to this meal next week on the 4th and last evening of the Series, October 28. Please let the the Rev. Margaret Marquardt know so that there is an abundance of home-made soup for all to share!
