Preaching in the New Millennium

Yale University Press

This chapter describes how people live in a world of untold potential, but they keep that potential to themselves. They hoard it, keep it one from another, and because of that people starve, die, and go to war. They live in a time when they know enough about reconciliation that they could be at peace with one another, and yet they live at a time when the summit of the Americas has unbelievable violence in Quebec's city and in which nations in the Middle East are again at each other's throats. They live in a time when there is increasing knowledge about how to look after the environment and, indeed, today they celebrate Earth Day. Yet the planet speedily dies around them.

Keywords:   untold potential, reconciliation, peace, environment, Earth Day
