Does your Druid Path include community service?  If so, what is it and why do you feel it's necessary to contribute to your community?

For my personal brand of Druidry (not ADF), doing a year of service is required in order to become a member of the Grove.  When trying to cultivate a set of standards for my path/tradition, this requirement was always a central part.  I think that by reaching out to others, we are able to get closer to the Divine.  Also, the role of a Druid was to serve the community, so I think this is something that we all can do without having to go to law school, f'ex. 

Your thoughts?

I used to volunteer and would love to do so once I have a job and a reliable car again. As far as environmental consciousness goes I'm studying for a B.S. in Environmental Policy and Management now and trying to do things around the house to be greener and save money. I've been struggling (and suceeding slowly) to clean up our overgrown yard and hope to start growing vegetables next spring. I also drive minimally - though that has at least as much to do with my awful car as anything else -, recycle, etc.

If nothing else my philosophy is, it couldn't hurt and it could help so why not?

Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear. - Thomas Jefferson

It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. - Thomas Jefferson
