The Pastors Sandal Path relates my envisioning of God in nature. I was privileged to grow up with my sister and five brothers on a farm where our parents instilled in us the presence of God in our daily lives, as well as in the majesty of Gods nature. My early schooling took place in a one-room country school where our fantastic teacher incorporated the beauty of God and nature in the classroom and on field trips. In the upper grades, the Dominican sisters assisted my parents in laying a solid faith foundation. After graduation, I entered St. Mary of the Lake Seminary Mundelein where my faith was deepened, my love of Jesus increased, and Gods presence in nature more keenly perceived. I hope my perceptions of God in nature will help the reader to encounter God in their ordinary experiences of life.

Capitalism in the Anthropocene

Over the last 11,700 years, during which human civilization developed, the earth has existed within what geologists refer to as the Holocene Epoch. Now science is telling us that the Holocene Epoch in the geological time scale ended, replaced by the onset of a new, more dangerous Anthropocene Epoch, which began around 1950. The Anthropocene Epoch is characterized by an “anthropogenic rift” in the biological cycles of the Earth System, marking a changed reality in which human activities are now the main geological force impacting the earth as a whole, generating at the same time an existential crisis for the world’s population. What caused this massive shift in the history of the earth? In this comprehensive study, John Bellamy Foster tells us that a globalized system of capital accumulation has induced humanity to foul its own nest. The result is a planetary emergency that threatens all present and future generations, throwing into question the continuation of civilization and ultimately the very survival of humanity itself. Only by addressing the social aspects of the current planetary emergency, exploring the theoretical, historical, and practical dimensions of the capitalism’s alteration of the planetary environment, is it possible to develop the ecological and social resources for a new journey of hope.

Realism and the Climate Crisis

In the teeth of climate emergency, hope has to remain possible, because life insists on it. But hope also has to be realistic. And doesn’t realism about our plight point towards despair? Don’t the timid politicians, the failed summits and the locked-in consumerism all just mean that we have left things far too late to avoid catastrophe? There is a deeper realism of transformation which can keep life powerful within us. It comes at the price of accepting that our condition is tragic. That, in turn, calls for a harsher, more revolutionary approach to the demands of the emergency than most activists have yet been prepared to adopt. This is a book to think with, to argue and disagree with – and to hope with.
