Is the Code of Ethics?
All persons who intend to be Ministers, Certified
Spiritual Healers and Diplomats of Earth Stewardship are required to adhear
to the following code of professional ethics.
CODE OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT FOR TRUSTED SERVANTS
Trusted Servants shall strive to be open and tolerant
in all matters of the spirit, mind and expression, sharing rather than
hoarding, facilitating rather than dominating, caring rather than neglecting,
placing principles before personalities and allowing all others to find
their own peace and spiritual sanctuary.
All Trusted Servants shall render the utmost respect for
the integrity of all individuals, whether or not human, and support the
holistic integration of all human communities within the natural ecological
ecosystems of the planet, solar system, galaxy and universe. They, along
with all members of the congregation, are encouraged to dispel, through
both reasoned and intuitive knowledge, the ignorance that breeds fear,
needless cravings, anger, rage, hatred, starvation, suffering, illness,
abuse, cruelty, neglect, guilt, disease and wasting of life. They are all
encouraged to reach for an understanding of the individual integrity protected
and preserved but still within the ecological web of Gaiactic, Celestial,
Galactic and Universal relationships.

I agree to follow this code of professional ethics. I
understand that this code of professional ethics does not bind me, or anyone
else who takes it, to any religious dogma, particular faith or profession
of faith or particular religious practice but this code does apply to the
practice of my activities as a trusted servant while affiliated with a
Spiritual Healers and Earth Stewards Congregation of my choice.
