September 22nd, 4-5 pm - Webster Woods in the open grassy area
Come honor our precious Earth and acknowledge our role in caring for creation. Bring a sample of water from a local water source to be joined with others at the celebration. Bring a chair if desired and an umbrella.
We are a people of many faith traditions united by our common concern about climate change and our commitment to daily practice of care for the Earth.
We are informed and inspired both by ancient traditions and modern science. We seek a spirituality that is responsive to the gifts of nature in all forms, including the human capacities for reason and compassion.
We proclaim our kinship with all of creation.
We acknowledge the ways in which our current relationship with the Earth is broken, and we seek reintegration through an active spiritual practice of connecting to nature.
We acknowledge the effect of our actions on the greater whole, including those most vulnerable to a changing climate and compromised natural systems.
We accept our urgent obligation to build a new framework for the future based on reciprocity, reconciliation, and hope for the flourishing of all the Earth.
We seek to inspire change and to serve as an inspirational resource for individuals and our larger society.
We commit to open dialog and relationship with people of all faiths and beliefs. Together, we explore new ways of being that are vibrant, inclusive, and responsive to all life.
Call Martha Bell with any questions.
