Native Tree Planting Action and inspirational Sunday morning service addressing Global Warming
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 10:30 - 23:45
There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist (www.uua.org) congregations affirm and promote:
• The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
• Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
• Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
• A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
• The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
• The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
• Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
From the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth (http://uumfe.org/)
We cannot promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person and respect the interdependent web of existence if we do not address the damage from anthropogenic (human-caused) climate changes. We cannot have justice, equity, and compassion in human relations and a world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all unless we address anthropogenic climate change. The world is already experiencing impacts from both the human activities that caused climate change as well as from climate change itself. People are getting sick from mining for coal and cleaning up oil disasters. Changing weather patterns contribute to food and water shortages, leading to increased migration and unrest. Plant and animal species are going extinct. The causes and impacts of climate change disproportionally impact low-income communities and communities of color. We envision a world in which all people make reverence, gratitude, and care for the living Earth central to their lives.
Join the families of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton (www.uufbr.org) for an inspirational and informational Sunday morning service addressing Global Warming/Climate Change and highlighting the ceremonial planting of native trees. All are welcome to participate.
