As we continue BuxMont’s Climate Action study, the Adult Education and Enrichment Committee is once again offering an opportunity for the entire congregation to read and discuss a book on the topic of climate change and the environment. Life Rules offers a comprehensive analysis of our present circumstances, combined with a holistic treatment protocol for restoring health to vulnerable human and natural communities. If we keep doing what we’ve been doing, Life will last, but Life as we know it – and a lot of us – won’t. Life Rules identifies natural laws that have allowed non-human communities to thrive and prosper for several billion years, including:
- Local self-reliance
- Mutual interdependence
- Reliance on non-fossil sources of energy
- Resource conservation, sharing, and recycling
- Radically democratic self-organization and governance
Life Rules will be available in the BuxMont library or through your local bookstore. We will be meeting on March 22nd at 1 p.m. (room to be assigned) to discuss some of the points in Life Rules. There is a sign-up sheet on the Adult Education and Enrichment Bulletin Board in the Social Hall.
