Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am an online member of Transition Seattle and have ongoing relationships with some of the other members through other local organizations.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
My Dad was a petroleum engineer who told us oil was going to run out around our dinner table (50 years ago). He also told us about population increase. So I am firmly grounded in these realities and want to contribute to regeneration of community and relocalized basic life functions to meet the emerging challenges.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I got here to this site because I am involved in local permaculture and see both great value in the regenerative principles and practices of permaculture but I also come out of a Christian grounding and am becoming painfully aware of the cultural divides between different groups which are preventing a healthful spread of these and other important ideas and methods. I want to find ways to bridge the gaps and find others who have similar concerns to be able to work together.

Anita: You speak from the heart. I believe that is where healing of nature
will start, if it does. If you read the Energy Bulletin and follow Sharon
Astyk, I think you will see what I mean. Permaculture and TT are two of
our only hopes to have a future perhaps.

I am generally proud of the Episcopal Church. I think they are trying, even if we are, like everyone, caught up in the culture war.

"Mainstreaming" is a word I use alot when talking about the churches and ecology. The work is to adapt the content and the packaging of the message so it can be heard and adopted by "the middle pew." For the most part, "green" in churches is still pretty fringe, and the folks doing the work tend to work on those fringes.

So, lets see what we can figure out.

I have just joined, and am quite interested in how to get churches more on board. I am an Episcopal priest, and much of my ministry is focused upon this. So, lets talk.

I too have been searching around this site for faith community involvement - don't think there is much there as yet. Lets get it started.

Church-permaculture? I suggest you do a SEARCH here on this site (upper right corner of each window) -- http://transitionus.ning.com/main/search/search?q=church Also, be free to start a Discussion asking the members for clues.... By the way, are you associated with a church that espouses Transition-type work? If so, you're welcome to register your church at http://transitionus.ning.com/groups/group/listByLocation?location=Faith+Based+Directory -- Let me know if you have questions.

Hi Anita. So glad to see you here. ...My Dad was a petroleum engineer who told us oil was going to run out around our dinner table (50 years ago). He also told us about population increase. So I am firmly grounded in these realities and want to contribute to regeneration of community and relocalized basic life functions to meet the emerging challenges.... -- There surely is a place for us to learn from the elders... Welcome.
