Ike, the author of the blog entry cited here, has confused Wendell Berry with Thomas Berry. A great thinker about and lover of our earth, Fr. Thomas Berry died on June 1.
ike: Wendell Berry.
Wendell Berry passed away on the first of June. He was a great thinker, farmer, theologian, and writer, and one of the most literate critics of modern agriculture and the "green revolution". A hero. I hope that his death at least helps to raise awareness of the issues he fought so hard for, but I doubt it will be considered newsworthy.
We mourn the loss of Fr. Berry. And we celebrate the ongoing life and work of Mr. Wendell Berry.
