Then you shall take some of the blood, and put it on the door posts and the lintels of the houses . . .
and when I see the blood, I shall pass over you, and no plague shall fall upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
- Exodus 12: 7 & 13
They thought they were safe
that spring night; when they daubed
the doorways with sacrificial blood.
To be sure, the angel of death
passed them over, but for what?
Forty years in the desert
without a home, without a bed,
following new laws to an unknown land.
Easier to have died in Egypt
or stayed there a slave, pretending
there was safety in the old familiar.
But the promise, from those first
naked days outside the garden,
is that there is no safety,
only the terrible blessing
of the journey. You were born
through a doorway marked in blood.
We are, all of us, passed over,
brushed in the night by terrible wings.
Ask that fierce presence,
whose imagination you hold.
God did not promise that we shall live,
but that we might, at last, glimpse the stars,
brilliant in the desert sky.
- Lynn Ungar

Spring of Sustainability launched yesterday with a powerful and sobering session with Bill McKibben, global climate change activist and founder of 350.org.
Bill pointed out that 2 degrees centigrade of warming is the maximum that the Earth can tolerate without going over the edge into climate chaos, causing unimaginable disaster and suffering. We're already at about 1 degree of warming.
He further made clear that the fossil fuel industry collectively has in its known reserves over 5 times the amount of carbon that it would take to hit that 2 degree limit, so the gun to our head is already loaded.
This is why 350.org is now focused on forcing the fossil fuel industry--oil and coal, most importantly--to shift to renewable energy development through a global campaign of divestment, starting with colleges across the US. And they're getting traction: hundreds of colleges and universities are joining in.
Tuning into 350.org, as well as other sites to track the progress of climate change, such as dailyclimate.org and climateprogress.org, is a great way to stay educated and engaged in this epic issue.
