Kernza ~ a new Perennial Grain

Have you heard of Kernza? It’s the trademark name for a new intermediate wheat grass and a perennial grain the Land Institute is researching and growing that would provide more stability to our agricultural systems. It can be used for baking; making cereals, beer & pasta and more. Why perennial instead of annual? A perennial grain is deeply rooted so it builds soil health, protects soil from erosion, helps to retain clean water, sequester carbon, enhances wildlife habitat, and doesn’t need to be reseeded or replanted annually. Whereas, wheat, an annual crop, needs to be replanted and requires annual plowing or herbicides to establish.
Cascadia Farms (a General Mills subsidiary) has agreed to purchase initial amounts of the Kernza grain to incorporate in their products. This supports the Land Institute to make arrangements with farmers to plant commercial-scale fields. It’s still in the early stages with very limited harvests, so it’s worth following this effort. Read more about  Kernza and the Land Institute .

The Land Institute has a pretty cool mission worth repeating here.
Mission of the Land Institute:
“When people, land, and community are as one, all three members prosper; when they relate not as members but as competing interests, all three are exploited. By consulting Nature as the source and measure of that membership, The Land Institute seeks to develop an agriculture that will save soil from being lost or poisoned, while promoting a community life at once prosperous and enduring.”

Centering Prayer; Mondays 3:30pm @ CHA
Ministry Leader: Lindbergh Marzo

Because we live in a busy and chaotic world, many of us are intimidated and perhaps even frightened by silence, but Fr. Richard Rohr assures us that “When we connect with silence as a living, primordial presence, we can then see all other things—and experience them deeply—inside that container. Silence is not just an absence, but a primal presence. Silence surrounds every ‘I know’ with a humble and patient ‘I don’t know.’ It protects the autonomy and dignity of events, persons, animals, and all created things…. Outer silence means very little if there is not a deeper inner silence. Everything else appears much clearer when it appears or emerges out of silence. Without silence, we do not really experience our experiences. We are here, but not in the depth of here. We have many experiences, but they do not have the power to change us, awaken us, or give us the joy and peace that the world cannot give.”

Most of us have been trained to avoid silence (and therefore God’s presence and our own being) by filling every waking moment with noise and distraction. Seek out an opportunity today to simply rest in silence. 

Church of the Holy Apostles hosts a centering prayer group meeting on Mondays at 3:30 pm that is open to all. We are one of ten Episcopal churches throughout the state that meets regularly. Come join us!
