By nature of the God’s Way constitution and the selection processes for members and volunteers, every individual within the organisation shares a common vision and values. Fundamental Facts, Principles and Values guide God’s Way Ltd and determine the model and methods for business operations.
God cleverly designs his creations with the ability to recover from degradation and return, not only to their original state, but beyond this into an improved condition.
Due to the emotions, intentions and actions of humans in opposition to God’s Laws, environmental degradation of the earth has occurred over many years.
The aim of the God’s Way organisation’s Eco System Recovery Programme is to demonstrate how to recover natural environments into the state that God created and intended for them. To do this, the Programme seeks to discover the innate intelligence and methods for recovery that God has built into his environmental creations. Projects within the Programme will support and encourage the process of restoration that God has designed and educate people about the emotional causes within humanity that created the damage in the first place.
The Shed Site Rehab Project involved recovery of a site which had once had a shed built on it, to demonstrate how to rehabilitate an area of dry, damaged land. Activities in this project not only returned the site to the condition it was in before the shed was constructed (sparse vegetation on an arid slope) but was able to improve the land beyond that condition into an area which, by providing water, food and shelter, will now be able to support many forms of life including insects, birds, animals, plants and the growth of large trees.
This is the third part of the “Fundamentals” series explaining the Vision and Fundamental Facts, Principles and Values that determine the model and methods for all operations of the God’s Way Ltd organisation.
As I explained in my last post, every individual within the organisation shares a common vision and values. Informing this vision are the Fundamental Facts, Principles and Values accepted by God’s Way Ltd.
To understand the way that the organisation operates and makes decisions it is essential to understand these “Fundamentals”. Due to the nature of these “Fundamentals”, every system within the organisation will operate in a way that is unique to other organisations.
The first aspect of the “Fundamentals” are the Fundamental Facts.
In 2016 I became one of the first directors and an original member of God’s Way organisation.
Despite having lived 72 years and having had many experiences and a range of occupations, I honestly feel that nothing in my previous life prepared me to be a director.
When God’s Way Ltd was founded I thought that our main mission would be to establish an Environmental Learning Centre focused on conservation and restoration of the natural environment. I really didn’t know much about how to run an organisation in harmony with God’s Principles, or what being a Director would entail. Even after reading the beautiful Constitution of God’s Way I still didn’t even fully realise what it was all about.
The Waste Management Programme within God’s Way Ltd seeks to understand and replicate God’s systems for waste management. In contrast to many of the methods of production currently undertaken by humans, God’s systems manage waste produced during the process of creation in a way that does not burden the environment, but in fact promotes life and supports further creation.
Developed within the Waste Management Programme, the Community Green Waste Disposal Project is a God’s Way Ltd initiative that collects organic waste from local green grocer businesses on a weekly basis. The waste is unloaded into swales and deep trenches which have been created on land owned by God’s Way Ltd.
In my last post I promised to share more about the core principles that guide God’s Way Ltd. operations. In this, the “Fundamentals” series of posts, I’ll use excerpts from the God’s Way Ltd. business plan to explain the Vision, Fundamental Facts, Principles and Values of the organisation.
My name is Amaia Ruiz Lopez and I am from a small village named Bera, situated in the north of Spain.
I completed the God’s Way Volunteer Selection Project in March 2018.
