As usual, there’s a lot going on at Fiat Lux.  There is a wonderful poem on salvation by Lynn Ungar in What is salvation?  Ask a poet:

Salvation

By what are you saved? And how?
Saved like a bit of string,
tucked away in a drawer?
Saved like a child rushed from
a burning building, already
singed and coughing smoke?
Or are you salvaged
like a car part — the one good door
when the rest is wrecked?

Do you believe me when I say
you are neither salvaged nor saved,
but salved, anointed by gentle hands
where you are most tender?
Haven’t you seen
the way snow curls down
like a fresh sheet, how it
covers everything,
makes everything
beautiful, without exception?

Then there is an artical on what’s happening with the environment (and how closing newspapers are not helping) in Global warming, global restoration and Journalists.  In it he says:

I mention all this by way of pointing out the confluence of a number global trends: it takes journalists to investigate and highlight threats to the environment, especially those in places remote from the rest of us, like in Alaska. Journalists are in shorter supply today, and that ought to alarm us.

While you’re there, you might also want to look at what he has to say (elsewhere) about the One Campaign (and One Episcopalian).  Or you could go to The Episcopal Public Policy Network’s information about One Episcopalian.
