New Issue of Dialogue explores Mormon Environmentalism

Quote from A Wonderful Flood of Light, p. 103, Neal A. Maxwell:

True disciples, for instance, would be consistent environmentalists-caring both about maintaining the spiritual health of a marriage and preserving a rain forest; caring about preserving the nurturing capacity of a family as well as providing a healthy supply of air and water; caring for both the prevention and the treatment of the miseries caused by the diseases of transgression.”

The new issue of Dialogue is devoted to Mormon Environmentalism! It’s got a stellar lineup authors, writers, poets, and thinkers. Look at this table of contents and begin drooling. You don’t want to miss this issue!

    This looks amazing, Steve! I can’t wait. And how cool is it that two of our own OMK contributors are featured in it?!

    Missy, I thought the same. Maybe you’ll have a piece in the next environmental issue of Dialouge.

    Finally, I get to see who else is in this issue. Thanks, Steve, for putting this up. And … I happened across Our Mother’s Keeper today as I searched for something else. What a happy find! I’ve added it to the blogroll over at Wilderness Interface Zone. Best wishes for a successful blogrun.
