Earthcare

"We are called to live in right relationship with all Creation,
recognizing that the entire world is interconnected
and is a manifestation of God."
-from the Quaker Earthcare Witness vision statement

Broadmead Meeting has an Earthcare Interest Group which meets on an irregular basis to consider concerns and interests that arise among Friends in the Meeting. All are welcome to attend.

"Our faith as Quakers is inseparable from our care for the health of our planet Earth. We see that our misuse of the Earth's resources creates inequality, destroys community, affects health and well-being, leads to war and erodes our integrity. We are all responsible for stewardship of our natural world. We love this world as God's gift to us all. Our hearts are crying for our beloved mother Earth, who is sick and in need of our care."
-from FWCC minute "Living Sustainably and Sustaining Life on Earth", Pisac, Peru, February 2016
