Query for 10th Month -- Stewardship of the Environment

  • Is the Meeting concerned that human interaction with nature be responsible, guided by a reverence for life and a sense of the splendor of God’s continuing creation?
  • Are the decisions of the Meeting and its committees relating to the uses of property, goods, services, and energy made with sensitivity toward the environmental impact of those choices
  • How does our Meeting learn about environmental concerns and then act in the community on its concerns?
  • How am I helping to develop a social, economic, and political system which will nurture an environment which sustains and enriches life for all?
  • Am I aware of the place of water, air, and soil in my life? Do I consider with care the necessity of purchasing substances hazardous to the environment? Do I act as a faithful steward of the environment in the use and disposal of such hazardous substances?
  • Do I choose with care the use of technology and devices that truly simplify and add quality to my life without adding an undue burden to essential resources?
