Poems to Honor the Earth—-a video with accompanying text

On Sunday, November 27th, I was invited to give the sermon at the Unitarian Church of the South Jersey Shore area. The church posted the video of my talk, “Poems to Honor the Earth,”  on YouTube

They also posted the video on their website. If you click on the link below, you’ll be taken to the “sermons” page. Then scroll down to find my presentation. And when you click on the title “Poems to Honor the Earth,” you will now also access a PDF of the accompanying text.

When presenting, I did adlib a little spontaneously here and there, but other than that, I followed the text in the video. So you can now view the video while referring to the text.  Here’s the link to sermons:
