This postlude contains remarks that were delivered at the memorial service for Father Francis Kline, at Mepkin Abbey, South Carolina, on September 1, 2006. Fr. Klein did not argue for cultural and natural conservation in terms of economic expediency, for example, ecosystem services, or biological and ecosystemic necessity, as important as these might be. The conservation of nature and human cultural communities are matters of ultimate concern both for ourselves and for the natural communities and landscapes within which we live. To dwell solely in, and be solely concerned for, God, Nature, or Humanity is to lead a humanly deficient life. Only where the three realms of existence interweave and interfuse can we live a full, humanly rich life
