You’re Working to Change the World!

Our logo represents respect for the wisdom of God/Nature AND respect for fellowman as equally valuable and worthy of love.

Whether or not we actually ascended from apes, believing that we were created by a Higher Power certainly makes us want to act less animal-like doesn’t it? When we view ourselves as part of the animal kingdom, we are more likely to treat others as if they are our mortal enemies in the “eat or be eaten” reality of Darwin’s natural selection.

When we see ourselves as creations of a wise and loving Higher Power, we are more likely to see each other as equally worthy of respect. This perspective allows us to rise above survival-of-the-fittest’s bloody fray and enjoy and share freedom, peace and prosperity for all.

If you are trying to change the world by moving it more towards an environment of respect for others by modeling the higher wisdom of God/Nature in our culture and in our local social institutions, then I’m on your team and would be happy to help you in any way I can.

In my view, these types of organizations are doing just that:

  • Customer and Worker-owned Cooperatives – Valuing people at least as high as profits in the workplace
  • Sudbury-style Democratic Schools – Respecting the child’s innate curiosity and capacity to learn
  • Self-governing Intentional Communities – Living in harmony with others and Nature
  • Forest Gardeners and Permaculture Practitioners – Respecting Nature’s form of agriculture
  • Local, Self-governing Clubs and Charitable Organizations – Filling our common needs and interests at the lowest level
