Quaker Spiritual Insights in Responding to Climate Crisis

What is our role as individuals in addressing the climate crisis? What is the ministry of our meetings at this time? What spiritual insights do Quaker writings have to offer us as we explore these questions, both individually and as Quaker communities?

Woodbrooke has produced a set of study materials using Quaker spiritual insights to help Friends reflect on, and discern their responses to the developing ecological crisis. The materials, which can be used by individuals or in meeting study groups, do not propose specific solutions or actions. Instead, they aim to enable Friends to reflect on this issue, and discern what spirit-led responses are required at this time.
