The Natural Life – The Rev. Jean Darling

Recently, we have been discovering the inter­connectedness of the world in new ways; for ex­ample, how our human biome (the bacteria in our gut) contributes to our health, or lack thereof. We are discovering that the bacteria in the soil con­tribute mightily to its health, and to the nutrition­al value of the beans, squash and corn we grow in it. We are discovering that the trees in the healthy forest communicate with one another through microscopic life in the soil, feeding one another or warning of imminent threats. The large and the small need one another, and we are richer for our shared existence.
