BeFriending Creation

Quarterly newsletter of Quaker Earthcare Witness

Volume 31, Number 4
October - November - December

“OUR PLANET IS NOT for sale! Our air and water are not for sale! Our land is not for sale!” This message runs through our October-November-December issue of BeFriending Creation. We read inspired accounts on the events around the Global Climate Action Summit, and stories of faithful and humble accompaniment with indigenous peoples in British Columbia and Iowa. We lift up the voices of women leaders from the Women’s Earth & Climate Action Network (WECAN). Friends in Arkansas show us the rewards of creating wildlife habitats and native gardens at our meetinghouses. We find hope in Bob Bruninga’s enthusiastic research on alternative energy. We also share an update on Quaker Earthcare Witness' latest projects and concrete ways for you to get involved.

Let’s remember, “The Earth does not belong to us; we belong to the Earth,” Casey Camp-Horinek, Ponca Nation, Oklahoma.
