The Reverend Dr. Matthew Fox

 

 

"Sustainability is another word for Justice for what is just is sustainable and what is unjust is not." Matthew Fox 

  

A Greenman on the front of the Qld Print Office 1910 in Brisbane, is a curious sight.   Whilst researching the European Indigenous tradition of the Greenman we meet the wisdom and words of Matthew Fox in about 2003 

  


photoFox had run into trouble with the Vatican, namey the grand inquisitor Cardinal Ratzinger who forbid Fox to teach theology.   He became a member of the Episcopal Church following his expulsion in 1993.
 
Fox is an early and influential exponent of a movement that came to be known as Creation Spirituality. Drawing inspiration from the mystical philosophies of such medieval Catholic visionaries as Hildegard of Bingen, Thomas Aquinas, Saint Francis of Assisi, Julian of Norwich, Dante Alighieri, Meister Eckhart and Nicholas of Cusa, as well as the wisdom and prophetic traditions of Jewish scriptures.
 
Creation Spirituality is also strongly aligned with ecological and environmental movements of the late 20th century and embraces numerous spiritual traditions around the world, including Buddhism, Judaism, Sufism, and Native American spirituality, with a focus on "deep ecumenism" or interfaith. - wikipedia

The top corner reminded me of the Olympic torch which ran along the Cairns Esplanade,  with a big parade and American marching bands, hullaballoo for the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
