I agree with this. Not only is “interdependence” vague, it is also redundant in the current context. The entire revisions seem to be about relationship, community, covenant, etc. No need to emphasize “interdependence” separately
On the other hand, climate change, arguably the most pressing issue facing our society is given short shrift.
I agree that there is a puzzling lack of emphases on the climate/environmental/biodiversity crises. Even our interdependence situated within the web of life has been washed out towards generic human interdependence.
Interdependence doesn’t only address concern for the environment. It’s a core value of our CUUPS groups, which are our fellow congregants. We see all of life as interdependent and therefore sacred. The current A2 draft virtually erases our pagan and earth-based spirituality folks. We need to keep it where we can.
