Those who are old enough to remember the first Earth Day celebrations 50 years ago, might also remember the ad campaign that declared “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.”  In fact, there is no fooling nature -- its laws are those of natural consequence, and we are watching them play out across the globe as the pandemic runs its course, even as we do everything in our power to thwart its destruction.  In this setting, what becomes of reverence…

May 10 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

In the midst of stay-at-home orders and competing views of the way forward, we have an opportunity to reflect on the past and consider what comes next.

When we step over the threshold, what new and changed world will await us on the other side? And how…
