Earth Day 2016

EarthDay20161

 

April 22 (this Friday) is EARTH DAY.

Dear friends of St. John’s

God created the earth and all that is therein,
and God gave the human family
the responsibility to care for the earth.
I encourage you all to do something special

for the earth this Friday.

This year the national theme is tree planting.
Not all of you can do that, but if you can, plant a tree yourself.
If you can't do that, sponsor someone else in planting a tree
(one opportunity to do that is at the EARTH DAY 2016 website https://earthday.ca/).

More practically, get outdoors,
go for a walk - as long a walk as you can.
Take a bag with you and pick up the garbage you find on your walk.
Sort it for garbage/recycling collection.

Can't get out for a walk? - cut down on your use of of non-renewal energy. .
Try not to use a motor vehicle for the day,
Cut down on use of electricity- really cut down.
Open the door, step outside, breath in the fresh air and
feel the power of the sun and the wind.

The forecast is for a wonderful warm sunny day; "
rejoice and be glad in it..

And everybody: make a take time of prayer to give thanks to God
for this fragile island plant on which we live,
and pray for the will to take care of it..

THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S - REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT *

*Adapted from the Rev. Tory Byrne
