A few words that describe the active wisdom, the philosophy, of the earth congregation.
A community of thinkers, listeners and workers
Chaplains of the wide open chapel
Open to new paths into the forests
Seeking new trails up the mountains
Silently sauntering along rivers and shorelines
Students and lovers of Nature and the natural world
Intrigued and inspired by the investigations and discoveries of science
Peacemakers, justice-workers and network builders
Committed to the common good
Matriots not patriots (mother earth rather than fatherland)
We are not:
Interested in creeds, confessions or clergy
Divisive, sectarian or nationalistic
Patriotic (we love the land of our birth no more than the earth)
Religious (ritual and theologically based)
Spiritual (if this means non-natural experience)
We invite expanded definitions of our philosophy. . .
