Our relationship with nature
determines/reflects all of our relationships.

Honoring/worshiping nature sets the tone,
establishes the rhythm,
puts everything else in place around that.

Contempt for is exploitation of the natural world,
and reflects contempt for and exploitation of
all of our other relationships.

Nature's place in our life
all you need to know about us
to know what you can expect from us--
and how much,
or how little,
time you need to spend in our company.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
