Happy Earth Day! Thanks to HP contributor, Bart Everson, you can now listen to a compilation of voices of various ethnicities, nationalities, ages, and genders reading “A Pagan Community Statement on the Environment.” There is also a Spanish language version spoken by different people which was created by Vaelia Bjalfi. It is a very different experience hearing the Statement, as compared to reading it. It brings home a slice of the diversity that the Statement represents. The Statement has been translated into 16 languages and has been signed by people and groups from over 80 countries around the world.
Hearing these many voices can be moving. If this calls to you, perhaps take your mobile device to the woods or by a stream, and place it out of your sight while you sit comfortably. Listen to the words, enmeshed in our web of life.
