Complexity theory reminds us that the nature and life for all its creatures is very complex. Reconginzing this complexity helps us to act “to help and not to hinder”.
“Life in an interdependent web is a lot more complicated. It requires of us that we come to know each other beyond the scheme of up and down, mine and not mine. It demands that we learn each other’s stories, know each other’s needs and gifts. It declares that the community we inhabit consists not only of our friends and family, but also our environment, the animals, plants and minerals with which our lives are entwined. It reminds us that the threads which connect us reach back into our past and forward to the future we are creating.” – Rev. Dr. Lynn Ungar
