I woke the other morning from a vague vision/ dreamscape of Paul Klee's Angelus Novus and Walter Benjamin's prophetic take from his Thesis on the Philosophy of History. Weird, right? I hadn't read the thing in years and then barely understood the basic premise. But then I realized I had been reading about the California fires and wondered if my subconscious was trying to work something out. Benjamin writes: "a storm is blowing in from Paradise, it has caught in his (Klee;s Angel) wings with such…

Talking With Your Child About Climate Change             by the Rev. David D. Jones Children are naturally curious about the things they hear and often turn to their parents for explanation.

Here I have tried to formulate some sample questions we adults might hear from our…

Politics of Rupture      We start with ecological crisis; both its current unfolding and its immanently exponential threat.
