For those of us who are claimed by faith– as we keep true to faith – we have special responsibilities. We are grounded in creation. Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Our stories of faith acknowledge the stories of God’s goodness in creating our world. We know the stories of how it began and how exquisite it was. And we have a special responsibility to listen to those living closest to the earth and seas, indigenous communities – animals birds, fish. WE BEGIN TO HEAR A WAY FORWARD. Return the seas to a clean home for its inhabitants. Do not pollute the waters. Return the habitation of your communities to clean and healthy spaces. Do not ruin communities for your greedy purposes. So how now do we get there?
