In "Lyrics for Re-Creation" James Conlon sings a new song of salvation. The Director and Chair of Sophia Center: Spirituality for the New Millennium at Holy Names College in Oakland, California, believes that the natural world can be healed through Earth literacy, a resacralized culture, geo-justice, and the liberation that comes with passing on hope to future generations.
Conlon celebrates the diversity of the universe and challenges us to see ourselves as facilitators in the divine plan to re-create the world afresh. Throughout this visionary work, the author uses questions, exercises, poetry, and manifestoes to help us see the thrust of this sacred calling. In the last analysis, Conlon convinces us that the spiritual practices of attention, listening, justice, imagination, reverence, and hope will enable us to move toward "the freedom and fulfillment of the entire Earth community."
