As we face the grand ecological crisis of our time, our most important renewable resource is hope. We simply must put it on with our shoes each morning.

Creating a Future

muir_woods_feb_2012_073
The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and their destination.
– John Schaar

Where Does Wisdom Lead?

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

And sometimes a well-marked trail is helpful

The Trees of the Forest Rejoice!

Without a doubt, the Redwood Trees in Muir Woods rejoice!

Without a doubt, the Redwood Trees in Muir Woods rejoice!

Today’s Advent Reading is the Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 96.

The Lord our God comes with power.

Sing to the Lord a new song;
   sing to the Lord, all you lands.
Sing to the Lord; bless God’s name;
   announce God’s salvation, day after day.

The Lord our God comes with power.

Tell God’s glory among the nations;
   among all peoples, God’s wondrous deeds.
Say among the nations: The Lord is ruler;
   God governs the people with equity.

The Lord our God comes with power.

Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice;
   let the sea and what fills it resound;
   let the plains be joyful and all that is in the!
Then let all the trees of the forest rejoice.

The Lord our God comes with power.

They shall exult before the Lord, for God comes;
   for God comes to rule the earth.
God shall rule the world with justice
   and the people with constancy.

The Lord our God comes with power.
