Overview

When Judy and Jack Brown were at Pendle Hill as Friends in Residence winter term of 1995, Judy took Nancy Frommelt's course "Global Spirituality and Earth Ethics" and for the first time encountered the idea that in a metaphysical sense the Earth can be considered the Body of God. Suddenly her environmental concerns switched from being civic duties to spiritual obligations. She saw as well how closely Friends testimonies on Equality, Simplicity, Community and Peace related to caring for the Earth and all its creatures. This pamphlet is an outgrowth of that beginning.

About the Author

Judith Brown is a Quaker, writer, and teacher who has retired now to a piece of property that has been in her family for two generations on an island in Puget Sound, outside of Seattle, Washington. Workcamps in the early 50s with AFSC whetted her appetite for going with her physician husband, Jack, for six years to Turkey to work medically in a rural area. In 1991 during the Gulf War and the Ethiopian civil war when each morning she heard the news of the chaos war was causing, she was relieved to be able to be with a Ploughshares team doing organic agriculture—planting vegetable seeds—with Ethiopians in an Ethiopian village. Her book Faranji is about that Ethiopian village. She has four children and ten grandchildren. She and her husband Jack first joined Cambridge Friends Meeting in 1955, and have been members of the University Friends Meeting in Seattle since 1965.
