Spiritual support for climate action

“Early Quakers acted on their convictions from a place of strong spiritual grounding...

Careful discernment can help us be clear what it is we are called to do.”

Do you sometimes feel spiritually lost, burn out or doubt that you are making a difference? Tracey Martin shares how spiritual accompaniment can support and sustain climate action.

“Can our anger, grief and love push us forward to renewed action?" – Minute 33: Faith-based action for climate justice, Yearly Meeting Gathering 2021

Anger, grief and love can push us towards action but they can also make us feel helpless in the face of the climate crisis. Anger and grief can also overwhelm us when, despite our actions, change is still painfully slow. Our love for a person or a place hurts when we think about what might happen in the future. A focus on action only can leave us without anything to sustain us when things get tough.
