about us

The Compassion Consortium is a non-sectarian and interfaith religious center. We offer spiritual guidance, support, and fellowship to vegans, vegetarians, animal rights activists, animal lovers, and all humans who care about and advocate for animals and the planet. We recognize that many people do not see their deeply rooted compassion for all creatures reflected in houses of worship; some have even left faith traditions after seeing these innocent, loving beings excluded from the level of mercy they deserve; in many cases, they're even denied the possession of a soul.

 

The Compassion Consortium is here to supplement this "missing piece" for persons who are part of another religious or spiritual community, and those who are not. We welcome participants of all faiths or none. Our regular monthly service takes place on Sunday afternoons, 4 pm U.S. Eastern Time, to avoid interference with most church, synagogue, temple, or mosque services. While we encourage Compassion Consortium membership for those so moved, this is not a "join up required" kind of organization: we're here to serve you, the companion animals you care about, as well as all exploited, abused, and endangered animals, and the fragile ecosystem of planet Earth.

Green Faith: Mobilizing God's People to Save the Earth

by Fletcher Harper

God is calling us to live differently. The challenges we face are imminent. GreenFaith provides vision, inspiration, and practical tools to help you build your faith while inhabiting a creation that is at risk. With honesty and candor, Fletcher Harper shows that it takes belief and practice, science and faith to sustain us and our planet. The book gives concrete examples and tips that will help people of faith and worshiping communities engage in Earth care—in bold, life-giving ways.

By Reverend Sarah Bowen

Animals, humans, and the planet are in deep trouble. All across the globe, people are waking up to the undeniable connections between every living being―and noticing how out of balance our world is. Yet, awareness is not enough. Action is critical, and we face an increasingly arduous journey.

Why the Compassion Consortium?

"May all beings everywhere be happy and free. May the thoughts, words and actions of our day contribute to that happiness and freedom for all."
