Ecostream: Links to Ecological Action

30 April 2018
"Our insistence that each human being is an image of God should not make us overlook the fact that each creature has its own purpose. None is superfluous.

Anyone who has grown up in the hills or used to sit by the spring to drink, or played outdoors in the neighbourhood square; going back to these places is a chance to recover something of their true selves."
