Introduction, Session 15: Caring for the Earth

In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope. — Wendell Berry, 20th-century American poet and essayist

The theme of this session is "We can do many things to show love for the earth." When we do act to benefit our planet, we are living the seventh Unitarian Universalist Principle, affirmation of the interdependent web of life. With a story about Rachel Carson, one of the earliest environmental activists, the session highlights not only what can hurt our environment but also what everyone can do to protect it.
