A common thread in my local green/permaculture community is a strong calling from Daniel Quinn's "Ishmael" to enact natural, permaculture, and especially 'old ways' -- sustainable ways -- of living. In tieing this post to the spirituality issue, I took Ishmael as actually emphasizing (or at least reinforcing) Jesus' Christianinty (not necessarily the Church's version, though); "Leave all behind and follow me" was a reminder that the natural ways -- that 'God' gave us -- are the right way. That's even an issue related to permaculture, are we acting as 'little gods' in our agriculture or should we be practicing even more natural systems, focusing on harvesting wild edibles, etc.
