“We the members of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship support the application of our Fellowship for Green Sanctuary accreditation by the Unitarian Universalist Association.  Signing yea on this petition obligates us, jointly and individually, to become a greater blessing to the Earth and to make our life choices and actions better reflect dependence on earth’s web of life.”
