Earth Care Covenant
My consciousness reveals that all of creation is connected as one. The story of creation reveals that I am to be a good caregiver of the creation. As a person of faith, I commit to a renewed reverence for life and respect for the interdependent web of all existence.
I honor my spiritual commitment to the care, support and defense of the balance between my individual needs and those of nature. I envision a world in which everything has intrinsic value and where all beings are assured a secure and meaningful life that is ecologically responsible and sustainable.
I agree to transform my life into acts of moral witness, discarding harmful habits for new behaviors that demonstrate my respect for this harmony and interconnectedness.
