    Father Thomas Berry says, "...our primary purpose is celebration. Celebration of the dawn and the sunset and the different seasons of the year is a religious ritual, a way in which humans can establish their integral relationship with the universe, with the planet Earth." Respond to Berry's assertion.

    The first moments of the sunrise and the last moments of the sunset are my favorite moments of the day. Seeing those landscapes and listening to nature will certainly make my connection with Earth more powerful.

    I went for a walk today and I spent 60 minutes in nature.

    Composting is a little time consuming but worth it.

    What are the implications of access to nutritious food for a community?

    Farzaneh Parsinezhad 10/18/2018 7:36 AM
    Access to enough nutritious food is necessary for an active, healthy life. We are what we eat, as the saying goes, and poor quality foods are also linked chronic illnesses, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension and even premature death.

    Only 6 days left! I will do my best to continue the actions that I have chosen after the end of the challenge.

    These days I'm so busy and remembering to check-in every day become a challenge in itself. I am exhausted.
