Of particular interest to those of you who follow this blog because of our Quaker connection, I had a couple pieces published in the last edition of Quaker Life Magazine. Kindred Courage connects my own life and ministry with the inspiring example of Elizabeth Fry, and the beautiful book of poetry about Fry by Friend Julie C. Robinson, Jail Fire.
Quaker Life also re-published pieces of the Peace Month 2011 curriculum, SPICE: the Quaker Testimonies, and SPICE: a Quaker Youth Curriculum.
I've also been writing regularly on the blog for the journal I edit, Whole Terrain. I've been enjoying talking with documentary makers and authors to review their work, and learning about all the excellent environmental thought and activism going on out there. As a "journal of reflective environmental practice," I feel like Whole Terrain's ethos lines up well with my own Quaker desire for the coupling of reflection and activism.
Here are some of my favorite pieces I've written lately:
- DamNation: Whole Terrain interviews documentary filmmaker Travis Rummel
- Early Spring: Whole Terrain interviews Amy Seidl
- "Hottest Year": building trust in climate science
- Plastic Paradise: Whole Terrain interviews documentary filmmaker Angela Sun
- Nature's Trust: a conversation with author and law professor Mary Wood
