July 2023 Jubileo: News & Updates

Choosing a bank is one of the core choices we make for a new economy. Banking and finance take us to the heart of economic change, and to the heart of spiritual practice. One of Jesus’ most widely recognized sayings is that in economics, we must often choose between competing deities, God and Mammon. When JEM receives your donations we want you to know that your donation will get to work immediately financing aspects of a OneEarth Jubilee economy—even before we redistribute it for ministries in the Jubilee Circles.

Nature Speaks: We’re in This Together

We will not succeed on our journey into the larger topographies of OneEarth consciousness without increased connections with the Wild. Henry David Thoreau opened others’ eyes to this essential connection when he structured his life to include experiences of wilderness. Far from escapism, his connection with Nature kept fresh his Call to a OneEarth world.

Nature Is Our Willing Ally

I was not reared to live or think this way. During my fundamentalist youth I was told by teachers that Nature is great but can’t be trusted for the way of salvation. For that we need to seek the wisdom of the Bible. Today I set that teaching on its head. Nature is, I feel sure, our primary sacred text, and we cannot find our way into any kind of salvation (wholeness) without the oneness of all.
