Article on the new Papal Statement - "Its hits and Misses"- Makes important points about Sustainability and its relevance to many indigenous peoples..

As the article's author notes:

" One reason I have hope for religious involvement in sustainability issues is that faith and indigenous groups can speak credibly on the key issue of exercising restraint and drawing boundaries around human activities. The idea of establishing limits is strongly resisted in our all-out, pedal-to-the-metal capitalist growth society.  In principle, religions have a great deal to offer, given their rich collection of scriptural teachings, moral injunctions, and inspirational histories dealing with boundaries and restraint."

This article reminds us of the importance of these issues to anyone who seriously takes respect for the natural world as a ethical position and seeks ways to act positively on their moral convictions.
