Mourning the Darkness and Singing the Light of the Earth

June 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC+0

Every day, more of the natural places where we live and that we love are being destroyed.  How can we cope with such losses and still maintain our sanity and sense of purpose? In this service, we invite UUCB members into a shared journey during which we will acknowledge our sorrow about the places and species we're losing—and celebrate the beauty of the Earth, which we can perceive all around us and even magnify.   The Green Sanctuary Committee and…

Beauty for the Creatures

June 23 @ 12:00 am UTC+0

In the woods where I walk with our dogs, I have names for many trees, mostly white pine and hemlock. In the winter, I stick bits of dog kibble  into the bark, for the winter birds and squirrels. In the summer, I take a break.   Except for one tree. I have named it "A Tree Called Once" which will also be the title of a new book for young people. It's the tree that carries the sadness and sorrow…

New Mexico, like much of the West, is suffering from extreme drought caused by climate change. I plan to make beauty for our own nearby Santa Cruz River and all the plants and creatures who are dependent on it, as they struggle to cope with reduced flow and toxic waste. This river flows into the Rio Grande, which has dried up this spring in parts of southern NM. So I will offer cornmeal and prayers for all the rivers and…

South Beaver Township Listening Vigil

The land, water, air have secrets to share. This community and surrounding regions are being transformed into the next global petrochemical corridor, a mecca for plastics production.

In the 1950s, the Solite Corp. released hazardous waste into the soil, groundwater, and waterways of Green Cove Springs, FL—named for its once-pristine springs. Many people were sickened, and some died. Today, neighbors have joined together to oppose development until the toxic mess is cleaned up. But in this ceremony, we will listen to the wounded place itself and make beauty for it, weaving a golden gift on its rusted gold gates.

How Is Water Life at Sand Creek Near Suncor

Radical Joy for the Ohio River

June 16 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm UTC+0

The Ohio River is the most polluted river in the United States. For decades, our river, which serves as a water source for 3-5 million people, has suffered due air deposition, pollution run-off and waste disposal from power plants, coal mining, chemical, manufacturing and agricultural industries. The latest threat comes from the oil and gas industries’ fracking of the Marcellus, Utica and other deep shale formations.  Additionally, the oil and gas industry disposes of its radioactive wastes both underground and…

We will go to a grove of endangered Garry Oaks in the Victoria area, and create art with golden yarn and other materials found on site. Location is yet to be determined - one possibility is to go to the site where the McKenzie interchange is being built and some oaks were cut down (but several remain). We would do this only if it's safe, depending on construction works happening at that time. Alternatively we'd pick a different Oak grove.

Luckily organic farming is on the increase. Recently a drilling…

Twenty-two Eckerd College students have spent the Spring semester learning about climate change communication and effective techniques for public engagement.

We are also taking some time to pay attention to ourselves and perhaps heal a little from the sadness we feel over this issue.…

On the NYC Department of Environmental Protection land surrounding the Ashokan Reservoir, which provides water to New York City, there is a monument to the chief engineer on the project, J.

Homage for Southern Missouri Floods (May 2017)

June 21, 2017
Bath, England Bath, England United Kingdom + Google Map

In early May the Ozarks area where I used to live and the creek beside which my first home stood was badly affected  by floods. Sadly, several neighbors suffered severe damage and much of the place I lived in 2002-2007 was washed away. So, although I am in England now, I wish to pay homage to the destructive/ creative power of nature, the inevitability of change and to the need for humans to realize that we cannot really claim rights…

NW Florida Borrow Pits

For hundreds of years—from the indigenous first peoples to commercial real estate developers of the present era—selective sites along the great northern sweep of the Gulf of Mexico known as the Emerald Coast have been used to "borrow the red clay" to create earthen pottery and provide stable foundations over the sand for homes and roads. This borrowing has created acres of barren "borrow pits" where nothing grows. For this GEX those who show up will meet in ceremony and gratitude…

Moreover, ancient petroglyphs have been ground up and lost forever. In our Earth Exchange we visited one of those sites, the El Guique gravel mine, and created an act of beauty.

We are amidst the "Great Turning" says Joanna Macy, from an industrial growth society, to a life-sustaining society. To get there, we must deeply feel our emotions, and gather in community - for sacred ritual and celebration. This involves both deep gratitude for this magical life, and deep pain for the travesties occurring each moment. From that place of community witnessing of authentic feelings, we can more clearly see our great potential, and thus go forth into our soul's calling.…
