What’s NOW with SLW!

What’s Coming

Advent: Since Christmas is on a Sunday this year, Advent starts as early as ever, Nov. 27.

What Others Are Doing – So Much Help!

I gladly pass along links from simple living bloggers, podcasters, coaches and others. Some faith-based, some not. You needn’t read them all. Choose FIVE links — including SLW! — to investigate.

What’s Happened

  • SLW! Podcast Ep. 78–James Howard Kunstler of KustlerCast, author of The Geography of Nowhere (1994), a history of American suburbia and urban development; The Long Emergency (2005); Too Much Magic (2012); and World Made by Hand series of novels. He argues that declining oil production is likely to result in the end of industrialized society as we know it and force Americans to live in smaller-scale, localized, agrarian (or semi-agrarian) communities.
  • The Ugly Food Project — SLW! Podcast Episodes #77 – Fighting for Clean Water & #76 – Celebrating Ugly Food — Exploring the intersection of faith, food and water in a time of drought — speakers, film, music, worship, fun! + Ugly Food Banquet, Bethel Lutheran Church (ELCA), Templeton, CA, Pastor Amy Beveridge and guest speakers
  • Previews of Simple Living Blogs, Podcasts and Sites // Collaborators & Champions
  • Recent Responses to all SLW! media, including links
