I had lunch with Tom Rowley, the US Director for the environmental group A Rocha, yesterday.

In follow up, he sent me this paragraph… I love it!

You asked me yesterday how to move people toward reframing quality of life from consumption toward shalom. Thinking a bit more about it, I realize I gave only a partial answer (not that I have a full answer): relationship. Another piece of the puzzle is, I think, learning. Here’s the logic behind that: we take care of that which we love; we love that which we know; and we know that which we learn. And the best way to learn is in relationship–whether it be relationship to a text, a person, a place, etc.. It’s the relationship (the experience) that moves knowledge from head to heart, and it’s the heart that leads to change.

For what it’s worth….
