"Do unto the Earth as you would have it do unto you."
Our religions and spiritual philosophies teach us to care for the earth.
Join us in living out this Green Rule by greening our communities, helping our neighbours and healing our planet together.
Monthly Meeting Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)
The Quaker House is an unassuming place, tucked away in a residential neighbourhood, on a quiet street.
Over the years, members of the Quaker House have been actively undertaking a number of energy retrofits. Despite facing similar challenges that are common with places of worship, such as a diminishing congregation and financial constraints, their members completed a number of eco-projects over the last few years.
Longstanding member, Don Woodside, sat down with Juby Lee, project coordinator of the Energy Benchmarking program in Hamilton.
We are now just days away from making an important decision as Canadians: who will we vote for to see our values reflected in government? For people of faith, those values include a sacred responsibility to love our neighbors and care for Creation.
The climate crisis presents a grave danger to Creation, with the greatest impact felt by vulnerable neighbors who are least able to adapt. Despite our differences in theology, dress, and culture, people of diverse faith and spiritual traditions share a moral understanding that we cannot remain idle when the web of life which sustains us is declining as never before in human history.
