Earth Abbey

The ever-vigilant Mike Morrell sent me this link — to Earth Abbey, a British-based community that describes itself as…

… a movement of people helping one another to live more in tune with the earth. We work to promote:

  • A rich relational life between human beings
  • A compassion toward the earth and its creatures
  • A sense of interconnectedness of all life
  • Wisdom and justice in relationships
  • Human fulfilment and the nurture of the inner life
  • A way of living that leaves the earth better than we found it

Our inspiration derives from Jesus of Nazareth whose life and mission was to bring about a peace which embraces all creation.  We pursue a life-affirming, creative spirtuality that is open to all. EarthAbbey is more than a website. It is a movement of people and you are invited to join.

Check out their website: it’s gorgeous. Their vision for Christian community is certainly inspiring. If you join the site you become a “novice” and are encouraged to take on practical tasks to deepen your relationship with with earth: grow a plant you’ve never grown before, take a concrete step to make your home more energy efficient, and so forth. In other words, Earth Abbey encourages its members to walk the talk.

Visit Earth Abbey.

    I believe the best way to care for our fellow and future “Man” is to care for and preserve the Earth that our Creator gave us. Thank you for finding this site.

    I love your Holy Well page. I hope to make it there someday.
