Reflection
Integral ecology, a holistic perspective on reality suggests that “human life is grounded in three fundamental and closely intertwined relationships: with God, with our neighbor and with the earth itself.”  As we consider Goal 2, we are challenged to consider how our actions that contribute to climate change contribute to challenges faced by our neighbors, especially our neighbors who suffer the effects of climate change in life altering ways.

Response
May we work toward the fullness of life for all, especially those made poor due to neglect or indifference.
