Quarterly newsletter of Quaker Earthcare Witness
Volume 30, Number 1, January - February 2017
2017's first issue of BeFriending Creation leads with a call for a "more radical witness:" to take to heart the lessons learned from indigenous land and water protectors in 1993 in Vancouver and today at Standing Rock in North Dakota. We reflect on the dangerous side of environmental activism in the Global South while celebrating news about solar energy's lowered costs. We read about the "wood wide web" in a review of the new book "The Hidden Life of Trees" by Peter Wohlleben. We learn about QEW's plans for 2017. We welcome Beverly Ward, as Southeastern Yearly Meeting's new Field Secretary for Earthcare, and Hayley Hathaway, QEW's new Publications Coordinator.
