Big Ideas For a Small Planet - The Pray episode
Aaawh, its the final episode of this 13 part series. In the previous dozen, the program has shown how we can make a difference, and despite the title of tonight’s ep, it’s not about relinquishing our responsibilities to a higher power. It is still very much about taking action ourselves. GreenFaith’s Reverend Fletcher Harper ministers with an interfaith coalition for the environment, who mobilise people of diverse spiritual backgrounds to deepen their relationship with the sacred in nature and restore the environment for future generations. Judy Bonds, coal miner’s daughter and director of Coal River Mountain Watch, together with Allen Johnson from Christians for the Mountains, describe how their faith helps them protect the Appalachians from mining destruction. Eternal Reefs (see here and here) mix a loved one’s ashes into concrete spheres, which in turn form artificial reefs supporting endangered marine ecosystems.
