The Autumnal Equinox marks the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere. We’re noting this occasion with a photograph from our @natgeo story “The Wisdom of Trees,” published in the March 2017 issue. This remarkable tree is called Pando (Latin for “I Spread”), and although it looks like an Aspen forest, it is a single clonal organism – with a long list of superlatives. At 80,000 years old, it is the oldest organism on Earth. It weighs 13 million pounds, making it the heaviest organism on Earth. And it is comprised of over 40,000 genetically equivalent trunks, with a root system extending over 106 acres. Pando lives in Fishlake National Forest, Utah. This most amazing tree (and many others) is included in our forthcoming book entitled “Wise Trees,” which Abrams Books will be releasing on October 17th. Thanks also to the National Geographic Expedition Council for their support of this project. @natgeo@natgeocreative@thephotosociety@abramsbooks

Why are there so many religions? Isn’t there only one God? Why didn’t God say the same thing to everyone? How do I know which religion is right?
Perhaps God does speak the same truth to people all around the world. The question is, when God speaks, what do people hear?
Two people can listen to the same story and come away with very different meanings. We hear what we need to hear in order to face our own particular challenges. People of different times and cultures hear God differently, according to their own cultural and spiritual conditions.
It’s not that God is different for different people. God is eternally the same. It’s that we humans are different from one another, and we each see God in our own way. God gives every person and every culture what’s needed to know and love God, and to love and serve their fellow human beings.🍃
