This week we'll be looking at sustainability with H. Joseph Menton. Joseph grew up on a farm in the Midwest and has been working in diverse arenas of health, as well as coaching organic business innovators in one of the "seats of organic culture" in the Western US. He is an expert in this field and a management consultant. Sustainability is an area of lifelong interest, research and passion for Joseph. He is also a long term student of The Urantia Book.
Today, the term “sustainability” is an oft-used buzzword across a wide spectrum of human industry and endeavor as both a measuring stick of current practices as well as a motivating influence in both design and engineering.
It has been said that healthy ecosystems and environments are necessary to the survival of humans and other organisms. In ecology, sustainability refers to how biological systems remain diverse and productive. In more general terms, sustainability is the endurance of systems and processes.
80 years ago The Urantia Book stated this: And now is industry supplementing agriculture, with consequently increased urbanization and multiplication of nonagricultural groups of citizenship classes. But an industrial era cannot hope to survive if its leaders fail to recognize that even the highest social developments must ever rest upon a sound agricultural basis. (68:5.13)
Please join us as we examine the definitions of sustainability and see how a purported revelation of truth, like the Urantia Book, may comment, cross-reference or enhance those definitions, perhaps providing valuable insight into discovering novel directions of inquiry.
