“Active Hope; How to Face the Mess We’re in without Going Crazy.”
By Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone
ISBN 978-1-57731-972-6

In 2011 Yearly Meeting committed us all, individually and corporately, to do all we can to reduce our carbon footprints, to live as sustainably as we can on our home planet the Earth. This book does just what it claims: helps us to face up to the awful mess that we’ve been making of Earth without panicking, and can help us to act responsibly. Please read it, and make sure your Meeting House library has a copy.
