“To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival.” –Wendell Berry 

“Diana Ensign’s inspiring message in her book, Faith, Hope, Action, brings to mind a quote from Cesar Chavez, ‘It starts with your heart and radiates out.’” –Charlie Wiles, Executive Director, Center for Interfaith Cooperation 

In April we have solar eclipse gatherings, Earth Day celebrations, and holiday festivities focused on rebirth and renewal. It’s an opportune time to reflect on what we need for individual, collective, and global healing. It’s also a wonderful time to explore where we might be out of balance—in our personal lives and in our relationship with Mother Nature. 

My new book, Faith, Hope, Action: Ushering In A New Earth Era, Together, takes a deep dive into these issues. For two years, I spoke with scientists, students, faith-based visionaries, Indigenous teachers, farmers, and environmental justice advocates to inquire what we need to do differently going forward to care for our Earth home.

As might be expected, there is no one solution to our environmental challenges. Yet, when we combine our ideas and act on our visions for wholeness, we can bring forth a brighter future.

There are lots of ways to do so!

For example, we can be mindful of how we treat the land, the types of foods we consume, and the products we purchase. We can advocate for the use of clean, renewable energy to generate the power for our homes, vehicles, and public transportation. We can actively care for and embrace marginalized communities, and we can ensure that the air we breathe and the water we drink is healthy. Moreover, we can engage in loving actions to safeguard our forests, our oceans, our wetlands, and our prairies and work to protect all living beings who share our home.

In other words, we can be Earth Warriors for this magnificent planet.

This spring, let’s ask how we can join together to shift our world away from crisis situations and into loving harmony. By learning to heal ourselves, our communities, and our planet, we will then begin the transformative work of creating nourishing communities, for all.
