To be human means we have a deep capacity to care and act responsibly about the future.
ANNOUNCEMENT from Marcie Dahlen
I am looking for helpers to make tie fleece blankets for children who are living with their families at the Family Service Center in Santa Rosa operated by Catholic Charities. Each blanket takes approximately 2 hours to make. No sewing involved. You need scissors and a ruler.
Background: There are 22 children between the ages of 2-10 living at the Center with their families. They are sheltered while working on finding permanent housing and/or jobs. Staff at Center works with these families for weeks or months to that end. The Center is presently in lockdown so blankets will have to be stored until delivered. JoAnn Fabrics had tie blankets kits on sale until yesterday, so I bought 25. Sale price was $15. If you are able to help or would like more information, call or email Marcie Dahlen 303-330-2804, firstname.lastname@example.org.
A gift from Steve Lyman: Links to 10 brief videos featuring Cosmologist Brian Swimme:
What is our cosmic story? In the last 100 years, science has provided more information on life than in all of recorded history. But what are we to do with that information? Cosmologist Brian Swimme explains why we need a new cosmic story that explains what we now know about the universe, and how that story can provide a pathway into the future of a vibrant life.

Mathematical cosmologist Brian Swimme answers the ultimate question by looking at our birth in a sea of light 13.7 billion years ago. Out of that initial event comes matter, atoms, elements, and the birth and death of stars. In the intense explosion of energy that attends the death of a star, the very atoms that comprise our physical beings are created and flung out into the universe.
To respond to the conditions of life is one of the fundamental capacities of the universe, Swimme tells us. To be human means we have a deep capacity to care and act responsibly about the future. As the dynamics of life on the planet change, from the genetically determined to the cultural, our decisions have the power to alter life on the planet. The most responsible decision we can make will be one that maintains the conditions of life and makes the earth blossom for millions of more years. With Cosmologist Brian Swimme.
