Social Service

In addition to the more obvious provisions of food for the hungry, clothing for those in need, and shelter for the homeless, members of this department are interested in the deep-rooted, far-reaching causes of social problems and in applying theosophical principles to their solutions.  Among other issues, world hunger, minority rights, and capital punishment are considered.  Members report their activities and exchange and discuss ideas to encourage others.  Often members are engaged in more than one outside organization in order to keep informed, to share a broader scope of world problems and to get to their deeper foundations.
