Worship and Action Update 10/18/02

Dear Friends in New York Yearly Meeting:

We too are America and so share responsibility for the things our nation says and does. When Congress votes for war, we feel complicit. When an urge for violence grips our nation by the throat, we feel fearful and oppressed. When the needs of the most vulnerable are derided and discarded, we feel demeaned. When lives are extinguished, we feel loss.

VIEWPOINT

Meet the Minimum Needs of All

By M. Radh Achuthan

We could meet the Minimum Needs of All (MMNA) through restitution and a 'Restorative Justice Compact' between the Rich and the Poor.

The Minimum Needs are:

  • Sufficient drinking water for each per day,
  • Nutrition of 2500 calories per day per person,
  • Localized basic clothing and shelter,
  • Basic primary health care, and
  • Substantive primary education of 5 years duration, in practice.

Friends World Committee for Consultation, (FWCC) Triennial, Jan 16-25, 2004, Auckland, New Zealand

Meet the Minimum Needs of All:  Interest Group

Ten Friends (eight men and two women) from seven countries met and after worship considered the theme of "Meet the Minimum Needs of All", from 2.40- 4.30 pm on Jan 24, 04. Enlightened by the Spirit, they arrived at consensus to send the following minute to FWCC.

Minute:

"Meet the Minimum Needs of All" is about the economic identity of being human. Where did the sanction for separation on this identity come from? Did the human spirit authorize it? Was it of necessity? Was it of choice? Is it necessary today?

The Search of Extraterrestrial Intelligence

(From Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space by Carl Sagan, Random House, 1994)



Earth
Earth (the dot in the middle) as seen from 3.7 billion miles away by the Voyager 1 spacecraft, on 6/6/1990.

... Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives.
