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.

The Golden Rule, the principles of the Universal
declaration of Human Rights, and this ethics statement take on life to the extent we move from love of self to
Selfless Love. Ethics are the foundation for a socially enabling environment for this lesson to be realized in peace. In this lesson is fulfillment.
