Four guests talk about our sacred responsibility to protect and appreciate the natural environment. J Phoenix Smith works as an ecotherapist and is called to the station of elder in the Lucumi tradition. In these roles, she promotes the health benefits of spending time outside, both individually and communally. Victoria Loorz talks about the true meaning of the wilderness coming from a background in Evangelical Christianity, while Rich Blundell discusses with wonder the growing convergence of science and religion. As a special feature, Austin takes to BYU campus to ask students about the ways they value nature -- their insights are sagacious! Lastly, Hamzah Iqbal introduces the deep interconnection of Islamic scripture and environmentalism.
