Fresh Pond Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) grieves the ecological destruction inflicted on Earth by humankind. We grieve our own complicity in that destruction and we grieve the interaction of that destruction with social injustice, violence and war.
God calls us to live on earth in a deepening relationship of humility and justice, honoring earth’s integrity and that of future generations. This requires a radical shift in consciousness regarding our place in God’s creation, and regarding our technology, economy, and society.
We at Fresh Pond commit ourselves as individuals to examine our lives to see into what individual actions we might be led to become better stewards of the world that we have received. We commit ourselves to discern together how we might be led, as individuals and as a Meeting, to facilitate the structural changes in our society that are necessary to preserve the earth’s generous welcome for ages to come.
