This Sunday: Subsisting sustainably – The ethics of being an Alaskan who loves fish
Ethical Eating was selected at UUA Study/Action Issue for 2008-2012. However, when you look in the study guide at uua.org (www.uua.org/environment/eating), it says next to nothing about fishing. Rich Seifert has volunteered to rectify this oversight. The ethical and environmental issues surrounding fishing are global, but they touch us close to home here in Alaska. We will learn about some of the issues surrounding subsistence fishing in Alaska and examine our own spiritual and ethical responses. This is our third service in a series on ethical eating. Upcoming services include the spiritual discipline of berry picking (August) and a reflection on raising animals for food (September). We will end the series in September with an “ethical eating potluck” of locally grown/raised food.
