Timberland Unitarian Universalist Fellowship


Timberland Unitarian Universalist will meet again in person at 1510 N.Timberland Drive in Lufkin, Tx.  We will be showing and discussing the following TED talks:

  1. “Let’s prepare for our new climate” TED talk by Vicki Arroyo 2012

Vicki Arroyo: Let’s prepare for our new climate | TED Talk 10 min

  1. “The ocean’s ingenious climate solutions” TED talk by Susan Ruffo 2021

Susan Ruffo: The ocean’s ingenious climate solutions | TED Talk 8:55 min

If I was a teacher, I would assign each of you to find something on google about ocean solutions for energy or food that are already being utilized around the world.  This should lead to a great discussion.  Laura Devine will moderate. I might add our congregation should discuss a plan  & volunteers to continue programing  and/ or in person meeting while Rich and I are unavailable.

This just jumped out at me and I had to share.

 I posted on my Facebook page this morning an article about Wendell Berry from a February 28, 2002 issue in The New Yorker .  This quote from Berry came in reference to talking to Trump supporters in a small town:

” If two neighbors know that they may seriously disagree, but that either of them, given even a small change of circumstances, may desperately need the other, should they not keep between them a sort of pre-paid forgiveness? They ought to keep it ready to hand, like a fire extinguisher.” Without this, we risk conflagration: “A society with an absurdly attenuated sense of sin starts talking then of civil war or holy war.
