Short Description: 1. Why Celebrate Earth?
Martin Palmer, FaithInvest and Miranda Krestovnikoff, Broadcaster/President, RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds).
Martin and Miranda discuss the urgent need for a new, celebratory approach between Faith Groups, the Arts, and Conservationists. We join Martin Palmer – also an Anglican lay preacher– in his own church in North Stoke, England, where he holds a funeral for the 160 species that have been declared extinct in the past decade.
What is the role of ritual in caring for our common home? How do we overcome our feelings of anxiety and paralysis over environmental destruction? Martin shows us one example of how Faith and Ritual can help us come to grips with our responsibilities as members of our common home.
