Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Let us evolve into stewards of the earth

The Italian Catholic founder of the Community of the Ark, Lanza del Vasto, remarked that "the future must be a future of nonviolence, or else there will be no future".

But we are intrinsically violent and noxious to each other and to our home planet. Will we destroy the earth?

Most think of evolution as something of the past. Most evolution probably is still ahead. We must evolve into a creature who is meek enough to be steward of the fresh garden.

I don't know whether this evolution will be physical or only spiritual.

I know the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount point the direction we must go if anyone is to survive.

Let us evolve!

Richard Kovac
