All life is interconnected. From the forest to the sea to humanity itself, each thread of being is woven into a single fabric of existence. We embrace nature’s beauty and are in awe of its power. We care for our environment so that it may sustain life for generations to come, an especially important responsibility because those who are most impacted by environmental destruction are often those with the least power. Creating a sustainable way of life is central to our view of a just and compassionate world.
Join us! The Green Sanctuary Committee meets on the third Sunday of each month at 8:30 a.m. at UUCL. Volunteer opportunities range from one-day projects to on-going projects with our native garden, recycling, education with children in the Faith Development classes, speakers events, neighborhood clean-ups, Earth Day events, acquiring environmental books for our library, and more. For more information about participating in the Green Sanctuary Committee contact the church or email@example.com.
April’s Theme: Water
Polluted and toxic water getting into our waterways and drinking water systems is causing illness for humans and poison for marine life and the surrounding environment. In addition, water plays a central role in the adaptation to climate change. Water is already a scarce resource that is likely to be the cause of power struggles and justice issues for the foreseeable future.
