Creation Care - "Wendell Berry and Local Place" with Jeff Bilbro

The Weight

God’s creation is a direct reflection of God’s glory, and Christians are called to be faithful stewards of the earth. While global issues of climate and environment can seem out of reach, our local communities give us space to learn and take action in small and large ways. How can we partner with our creator to build a better, more sustainable living environment? What simple, practical changes can we make to responsibly care for our local communities and our world?Chris and Eddie are joined by Jeff Bilbro, author of Virtues of Renewal: Wendell Berry's Sustainable Forms and Loving God's Wildness: The Christian Roots of Ecological Ethics in American Literature. Bilbro’s work on ecology and theology has been heavily influenced by Wendell Berry, an environmental activist and author best known for his book The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture. Bilbro calls his readers to a greater ecological and cultural imagination based in the idea of shalom, a vision of relational and community healing in the context of our environment. This episode explores the deep wisdom of Wendell Berry across his literary forms, the idea of interrelatedness within God’s creation, and how to hold onto hope while enacting hope in our communities.Resources:Follow Jeff Bilbro on the web:https://jeffbilbro.com Follow Jeff Bilbro on Twitter:https://twitter.com/jeff_bilbro

Successful But Single Panel Recap With Wendell Berry!

Successful But Single Podcast

Successful But Single Podcast did a thing!  We invited ten dynamic men to the stage and held candid conversation regarding what men say that women do not hear.  It was phenomenal!  Their disclosures were real and raw and gave way to amazing insight to why we fail to have effective communication between men and women.  The conversation was so good that I invited panelist Wendell Berry back to dissect the feedback and gain additional insight into what men are attempting to communicate to women.    Questions?

#103- Filial Piety in Wendell Berry's “Pray Without Ceasing”

Online Great Books Podcast

This week, Scott and Karl read “Pray Without Ceasing” which is included in Wendell Berry’s collection of short stories That Distant Land.  Berry writes about a murder committed in the summer of 1912, 78 years before the narrator learns its details, a crime that has haunted Port William ever since. Still, if you're of the Port William membership, this story is part of your history. Scott says, "He writes the way I recollect things. It's a familiar groove for me." Berry’s idea of a healthy community, which relies heavily on filial piety, is embodied in all his fiction. Karl says, "Filial piety is a virtue that used to be everywhere that we've lost a bit. It's clearly in this story."  Tune in to hear more about this fascinating short story, brought to you by onlinegreatbooks.com.
