Our Place in the Web of Life

Many people know a great deal about issues of sustainability and are eager to do their part to repair and restore the environment around them and lessen the destruction of our precious natural resources. And, many I understand how social oppression works to build up walls that divide the human family, especially along the lines of racial-ethnic identity and class. Yet, far too often these concerns are seen as separate issues. Indeed, at times, in advocacy or congregational planning processes for example, they even may be pitted against each other – with someone asserting that one concern should take priority because it is more important or fundamental than the other(s). This curriculum serves to link social and environmental concerns as mutually informed projects. As Audre Lord famously said:

“There is no hierarchy among oppressions.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. said it another way:

“What affects one, affects us all. We are
bound by an inescapable web of mutuality.”
