Our contradictions are killing us

The state agricultural department instructs us to spray a poison to kill the grass in order to plant a native wildflower garden. The road department leaves years of trash on the roadside but not the trees or bushes. We grow crops to feed diet-related disease and sickness. The government subsidizes foods that kill us. WeContinue reading “Our contradictions are killing us”

The Present Economy

“The present economy, by means of its purchases of governmental power, weighs invariably against the natural world; against working people, small farmers, and locally-owned small businesses; and against the life, integrity, beauty, and dignity of communities, both rural and urban. It is destroying our country. And this has come to be very much a two-partyContinue reading “The Present Economy”

Looking for hope

“In this difficult time of failed public expectations, when thoughtful people wonder where to look for hope, I keep returning in my own mind to the thought of the renewal of the rural communities. I know that one revived rural community would be more convincing and more encouraging than all the government and university programsContinue reading “Looking for hope”

We make war, we are told, for the love of peace. We subvert ourContinue reading “Costs of a growth economy”

If you are looking for God

If I were looking for God, every event and every moment would sow, in my will, grains of His life that would spring up one day in a tremendous harvest. For it is God’s love that warms me in the sun and God’s love that sends the cold rain. It is God’s love that feedsContinue reading “If you are looking for God”

To Change

To change big things in the world, we must change things in ourselves. To change ourselves, we must change our ways and our lives in order to see if what we believe to be true is not the Truth. We must ask deeper questions- specifically about who we are and how we are naturally designedContinue reading “To Change”

The arrogance of technology

Five minutes into this podcast and I am so 😡. What in the world-“If you look at the great cities of the world, the great cities are where all the productivity growth is, it’s where all the companies essentially get born from- they are not going to get born in rural places- it’s just theContinue reading “The arrogance of technology”

Pick up and read

I have been reading G.K.Chesterton’s Orthodoxy 🤯I must confess that I do not understand everything I read, because Chesterton was a genius and I am not. The funny thing is as I dig into these great thinkers, I discover that (1) I am ignorant (2) I do not search for truth like I think IContinue reading “Pick up and read”
