About this time of year, we are normally walking on the northern tip of Skye. It’s not been possible this year but it has got me thinking. It has got me thinking about what living @ the edge really looks and feels like.
Recently I was part of a wonderful conversation with some awesome people. We talked how we we can ‘build back with’ those who who were let down before COVID19 struck & have been marginalised during the pandemic.
I have been reading Roman Krznaric’s wonderful new book, “The Good Ancestor: How to Think Long Term in a Short-Term World.” It has certainly got me thinking.
Climate change is the greatest threat facing our planet today. Our failure to act over the last 40 years …. means that we may already be beyond the point of no return. We are not just at the edge. We are well over the precipice.
In June I was asked to record a short message to churches as we looked ahead to a time when the ‘clapping had stopped’ and the move out of lockdown was happening. It was a call to seek to live and love in frightening times.
I am passionate about the need for us to build back better from the catastrophe of COVID19. To do so effectively, we must build back with those who have been marginalised in the past.
