Thomas Berry and the Earth Community

Thomas Berry is a leading American writer about the role of humanity and our relationship with the Earth and the Universe. The Earth Community website is dedicated to putting forward his integral vision so that the ideas may take root in our world and flower independently in many people's lives.

In the vision of Thomas Berry, the primary sacred community is the universe. Every being and every other community becomes sacred by participating in this primary community. The Earth community is our immediate expression of those larger realities which we know through our sciences as well as through our poetry, our art and our religious impulses.

This community may not be taken for granted any longer. Humans today have become a force of nature - a geological force in our own right, and the Earth community stands at a pivotal moment of planetary evolution. This position was perceived very early in Thomas Berry's life as he regarded the cascade of changes brought on by the industrial-technological dreams of Western civilization throughout the 20th century. For many decades Berry has been calling us to pay attention to the most important relationship of all - our relationship with the Earth community.

In a situation of growing global ferment, the work of Thomas Berry is extraordinarily valuable and offers a very significant beacon by which to navigate our path into the future.  For this reason, Earth-Community.org was created by one of his students and friends and is offered as a web-site where one may discover an extraordinary thinker, a brilliant and beautiful mind whose many years of learning and reflection are now available to us through his books of essays, and through the work of those he has inspired. Please enjoy browsing through the various sections and forgive those which remain unfinished or minimally developed until more time and funding may become available.
