This podcast features Bishop Emeritus William Skylstad of Spokane, who has been an outspoken advocate of the need to find a principled balance between the needs of human beings and the needs of nature — that the two are interconnected and inseparable. He was an architect behind the groundbreaking 2001 Pastoral Letter on the Columbia River watershed. Skylstad will give a public speech at 7 p.m., April 23, at Kuykendall Hall at St.Joseph Church in Wenatchee titled: "The moral dimensions of climate change: A call to prudence, the common good and environmental justice. Skylstad, who grew up on an a small apple orchard in the Methow Valley, offers a thoughtful way to think more holistically about our responsibility to fellow human beings and our environment. He speaks eloquently of caring for the land, caring for people and community as the essential element of moving society forward in a constructive way.
