Action on behalf of life transforms. Because the relationship between self and the world is reciprocal, it is not a question of first getting enlightened or saved and then acting. As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.

These interlocking catastrophes that are backing us into an historical cul-de-sac include on the social side: intensifying economic disparity, wealth concentration, and racialized poverty; entrenched racial, ethnic, and religious balkanization and enmity; and the globalization of militarized politics.

It is important to recall once again that the narrative of Anglo-Saxon exceptionalism is a religious narrative……Not only did the early America Anglo-Saxons believe their mission to be one of erecting God’s ‘city on a hill’ but they also came to believe that they essentially have divinity running through their veins….Whiteness in this respect is not simply cherished property, but also sacred property. It is virtually the gateway to divinity, the key to salvation. As the evangelical Protestant hymns suggests, salvation requires one to be made ‘white as snow.’
