Mary Colwell (www.curlewmedia.com) is an award-winning freelance producer and writer. She makes programmes on nature and the environment for the BBC Natural History Unit and the independent sector, is a feature writer for The Tablet and has published a book on John Muir.
On Saturday 9 May 2015, Mary was the keynote speaker at Being a Christian and a Mammal - What it means to be a Human on a Living Planet; a discussion morning held as part of Bristol 2015 European Green Capital event.
An understanding of both who and what we are is essential as we search for solutions to the most pressing problem of our time: the environmental crisis. · Who we are: spiritual beings with a capacity for communion with God. · What we are: a mammal that has evolved alongside millions of other species on a unique planet.
Only by bringing these two together will we forge a lasting community that lives in harmony with life on earth.
The morning was organised by the Bristol region of the World Community for Christian Meditation (www.christianmeditation.org.uk) which offers a practice leading to greater attentiveness to the presence of God, to ourselves, and to the living world. This was the introduction to the morning and Mary Colwell’s talk which followed can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJxhv...
