From the Alliance of Religions and Conservation, a unique news report about an interfaith meeting in the holiest shrine of the Shinto faith.
In 1923, Shinto’s Shrine Precincts Preservation Committee set up a 200-year plan for replanting the shrine’s own forests. It will be another 120 years before most will be ready to be used. But this year, for the first time, around 20 per cent of the smaller trees used in the rebuild came from the replanting. Perhaps ancient religions have a lesson to teach the rest of the world.
