Katharine Jefferts Schori, speaking about humpback whales...
When they come together--they come together a couple of times a year, one of the places is off the Hawaiian islands. They come together for a time, and while they are together, they learn a new song. Each of their individual songs changes, and they begin to sing a common tune. When they go home again, they teach that song to their neighbors in their home localities, and over the coming months, that song changes again. And the next time they come back together, they learn a new song together.More from the Presiding Bishop Elect of the Episcopal Church here. Something that impressed me from the most recent interview I listened to, is that she was a trailblazer as a female oceanographer twenty-some years ago. Facing resistance is not a new experience for her.
