Bringing Friends Together to Care for Earth

    Upcoming Events

    • Worship Sharing with Quaker Earthcare Witness and Ben Lomond Quaker Center

      Quaker Earthcare Witness is hosting monthly online worship sharing groups in partnership with Ben Lomond Quaker Center.

      In worship sharing, we gather in small groups to focus on a particular question (or questions) to explore our own experience and share with each other more deeply than we would in normal conversation. It seeks to draw us into sacred space, where we can take down our usual defenses, and encounter each other in “that which is eternal.” We welcome all to join us!

      Together we are creating more opportunities for Friends to be in spiritual community with one another.

      *Please note this event is at 7pm Eastern time.

    • COP Forum

      COP27 (the annual climate conference) this past November in Egypt was historic. For the first time, countries came together globally to create a 'Loss and Damage' Fund. Loss and Damage is the way the United Nations refers to environmental justice - providing support for countries that have experienced the worst of climate change, have the fewest resources to become resilient, and historically did the least to cause the problem.
      QEW is sponsoring a forum to hear from five climate activists/advocates/policy analysts about their experience at the COP. Peniel Ibe (AFSC) and Wes Gobar (Yale School of the Environment) attended as part of the Black Hive, Clarence Edwards (FCNL) and Frank Granshaw (QEW) attended remotely, and Lindsey Cook (QUNO) has attended the past 9 COPs. They will share their perspectives and experiences.
      Please note this event is at 1pm Eastern Time/ 10am Pacific.
