Our Mission

 

The Tree of Life Educational Fund (TOL) a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation was established by The First Congregational Church of Old Lyme to provide cross-cultural and transnational travel experiences, interfaith conferences and educational opportunities to help participants to become more enlightened and more engaged in making this a more just and peaceful world in which to live.

The Tree of Life is a Sacred Symbol for many cultures. It reminds us that all of creation is deeply interrelated and interconnected. World peace and harmony depend on our realization of this truth.  It is a reminder that we do not live in an “an orchard” separate from one another, but all spiritual traditions are branches on the same tree — The Tree of Life — each drawing nourishment from the goodness of God’s Creation.  This is especially critical in the Holy Land where so many faith traditions share that sacred place.
