How timely to extend ethics of reciprocity, humane treatment, peace, and justice to include the whole of the living world, as human-nature interdependence and ecological responsibility become starkly clear with climate challenges. May earth life prevail, gentle rains return to drought-dry and desert lands, and balance be restored.

There is a need for all faith communities to intentionally and routinely address sustainability and climate change. Our planet is in a fragile state and the temperature of the planet has increased due the multiple ways that humans have used/abused the planet resources. This new fifth directive is about reverence for life and continuation of the human species.
