In November I attended the Northern New England District (NNED) Environmental Sustainability and Justice Conference, co-hosted by the UU Ministry for Earth (UUMFE).
The first day of the conference the Awakening the Dreamer Changing the Dream Symposium was offered. My favorite part of the day was when we were handed commitment cards and invited to sign them. The simplicity and the vastness of the statement struck me. Though, you don’t have a commitment card, I invite you to read the commitment and then decide whether or not you can write down the statement and sign your name to it. The statement reads:
“I am committed to bringing forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just human presence on this planet as the guiding principle of our times.“
