Our meeting on 15th October 2020 was led by the Revd Joe Knight who used Zoom to share his thoughts on “Wendell Berry: Poetry, Creation and the Renewal of Rural Life”. Joe's talk was illustrated with beautiful images of rural life credited to Eric Ravilious (1903 - 1942).

Joe’s talk reflects upon the impact of Wendell Berry’s writing, work and advocacy for local economies and environmental justice. Presented as a letter, it references connections with ministry in the Forest of Dean, and considers Berry’s challenge that big problems have small, local and communal solutions.

This session led onto a very intersting discussion and questions as well as further reflection on how local initiatives can inspire change for the benefit of our place, the land and its people.
