Wendell Berry is one of my favorite authors, especially his Sabbath and “Mad Farmer” poems. He is up in years though it seems he has always been at the marvelous place of not caring -in a good way- about the ‘popular’ critique of his work. He speaks his convictions about a Christian world-view and the perils of consumerism in multiple genres of poetry, essay, and novel. A friend sent this link to a May ’08 Harpers article that is brutally relevant to our current world. It is also wonderfully insightful for our current series on what it means to be human. You may not agree with Berry on everything here but being provoked to think and re-think is vital. Here’s the link.
