Vegan Missionaries

Our second annual Vegan Spirituality Meetup was a vegan-only event and was more focused than our first meeting. We discussed the essential qualities of Vegan Spirituality, such as compassion, empathy, and respect for all life. Despite our diverse views about God, we found common ground in our connection to nature.

We discussed the concept of being Vegan Missionaries. Each person shared how they spread the message of kindness and compassion, whether by blogging, sharing vegan food with friends, or writing books about veganism. At first, I resisted the idea of being a missionary. I reconsidered after realizing that we all felt a moral obligation to raise awareness about the impact of our lifestyle choices on other living beings. Now I can embrace my calling as a Vegan Missionary!
