Sabrina Miller Presentation

One Sunday morning in Lewellen, Nebraska, Sabrina Miller was invited to present her college graduation paper — A Sense of Place: An Ecological Proposal — at her hometown church service. Sabrina’s beautiful sermon on Permaculture was warmly received by very traditional, conservative farmers and ranchers who may have been surprised by some of her thoughts. I listened in wonderment as people’s appreciation and love for Sabrina transcended the cultural divide and allowed the light of understanding to move the congregation. Sabrina stood at the pulpit in the glow of a stained glass window that her grandfather had made for the church — a child among wild animals with the biblical words A Little Child Will Lead Them.
