You Awake?

The Awakening the Dreamer conference was awesome! Realistic and hopeful. Filled with information, exercises, and encouragement. We need awake people to care about our descendants.

Great poetry. We heard from Joanna Macy, Thomas Berry, Matthew Fox, and many others. Heard a haunting poem by Drew Dellinger that goes like this here:
it's 3:23 in the morning
and I can't sleep
because my great great grandchildren
ask me in dreams
what did you do while the earth was unraveling?
Tomorrow night, Sunday, at seven p.m., International Peacemaker, Dr. Vinita Eusebius will speak about the situation in India and how creative people are responding to poverty, children at risk, ecological justice, women's rights, and water.

Here is her schedule this week in Holston Presbytery.

Important stuff.

Your great, great, great grandchildren will quiz you about it.
