Why Reverence for Life (RfL)?

I met Percy and Vreni Mark many years ago and was struck by the serene aura and calmness that surrounds them. They introduced me to the life and work of Albert Schweitzer whose philosophy, ‘Reverence for Life’, makes so much sense, especially as life seems to become more and more a race against time, consumerism and the anonymity created of us by computers.

What does RFL mean in my life?

Appreciating all that life has to offer, try to stop, look, listen at the wonders of life around us. By appreciating how lucky we are to have this beautiful world, we surely must do all we can to preserve it and respect and love what has been provided in it.
