“Sustainability” is, as far as I can see, a project designed to keep this culture — this lifestyle — afloat. The modern human economy is an engine of mass destruction. Of course, I am conflicted about this. I live at the heart of this machine; like you, I am a beneficiary of it. If it falls apart, I will probably suffer, and I don’t want to.
What exactly do we mean by “sustainability”? As followers of the Lord Jesus of Nazareth, the question of what we are choosing to “sustain” is extremely important. It seems to me that we will ultimately choose to sustain what we value the most. What do we value? What is our end? And what do we need to sustain in order to see that future become real in our present?
