Duncan on Holiness

David James Duncan, via Grist:

"The word 'environmental,' I'm sorry, is not big or lovely enough to describe my heroes. Say it aloud. Environment. Hear the technoid ring? If Genesis began, 'In the beginning, God created the environment' instead of 'the heavens and the earth,' the Bible would be out of print. The word's lack of musicality prevents those who lack tin ears from rallying around 'the environment' with sufficient love and passion. What we seek to defend is a holiness."

The full interview is here.

Today's music is "We All Lose One Another" by Jason Collett.
