To heal the wounds of our planet and its peoples, to restore right relations among all God's creatures, to apportion the earth's abundance with equity and generosity—these challenges will demand all our courage, creativity, devotion, and sacrifice. Will people of faith heed the call? The answer may determine the fate of the biosphere and countless imperiled species—including the miraculous evolutionary experiment called humanity.
—Rev. Fred Small, RWE Co-Chair
