After reading the material for this week, and watching the two videos (my first minilecture, and the short piece from the Yale Forum on Ecology and Religion), I want you to get a conversation started around the following questions:
- What is something in regards to ecology or environmental thought that struck you from the readings?
- “Nature” is a really slippery term that means different things at different times. What do you think “nature” meant to Swedenborg (or another 18th century figure like him)? What does nature mean to you or us, today?
Please follow blogging protocol: take the time to read prior comments to this conversation thread, and integrate your fellow bloggers’ comments into your own reflection. You don’t just want to drop in your thoughts into the conversation, out of context — please weave them into the flow of what is being shared by others.
