In "Circle of Trees," a Tapestry of Faith program
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now. — Chinese proverb
Trees are an integral part of all life on earth, and they are facing stresses as a result of deforestation and pollution—stresses that threaten our very existence. As Unitarian Universalists who affirm and promote "respect for the interdependent web of all existence," we cannot take trees for granted. This program helps participants understand trees as, literally, "providers of life," explore a spiritual connection to nature, identify threats to the web of life, and feel inspired to take action to protect trees and our environment.
The story, "The Tree in the Ancient Forest," illustrates the interdependence of the ancient forest and connections with the web of life.
The Faith in Action activity introduces a process for selecting one or more tree-related projects and offers an array of possibilities for projects over the course of the program.
