Sunday Meeting -How Should We Live?

Colin Beavan

Curt Collier Presides 

The world is suffering from huge environmental problems.

Some suggest that human beings must "sacrifice" in order to deal with these problems. But how much are we already sacrificing? Maybe the way we live--the consumer-based economic system--doesn't actually make us happy. The question arises: What are people for? What kind of lives do we want? What is our relationship to the world? How should we live? Perhaps there is a way of life that will be both better for the planet and for us where we will actually have to "sacrifice" less.

Colin Beavan, author of the book No Impact Man, discusses his experience living for a year with no net-environmental impact in the middle of New York City and how we can become a part of finding the answers--for ourselves and for our cultures.

Colin Beavan is an American non-fiction writer and internet blogger noted for recording the attempts of his family to live a "zero impact" lifestyle in New York City for one year. Colin is an author, filmmaker and one of the world’s best known spokespeople on environmental issues, consumerism and human quality of life.

    Whenever someone puts "WE" next to the word "SHOULD", I know I need to run and hide, because these two words joined together are always a pretext to doing violence to me, bundled in a false moral justification.
