Earth Care Update

Thinking Green

For the start of a new year; words to ponder.
Excerpts from the 2018 Advent Devotional, Presbyterians for Earth Care

“May we sing joy as resistance to the order of things, and practice faith based economics that remind us of creation.”      
“Today I will choose to slow down.  I will choose joy.  I will choose God.”  
                    Read  Isaiah 52:7
“…I thought about all of the birds, and animals, and plants, and nature’s wonders that we humans carelessly attend, and realized that nature was not just put here for us to use and enjoy; but that, we….that I was put here to care for nature.”
                 Read  Job 12: 7-10 (NRSV)
“ ….strive for an economy that restores the land that the Lord gave us, together with a willing vulnerability to share God’s blessings and bounty with love and joy.”   
                 Read  Isaiah 40: 1-11;  Luke 3:1-6
“Discover that place in Creation where you hear God’s voice most clearly.  Spend time there, drawing strength, courage and wisdom…”   
                  Read Psalm 98:8-9  (NRSV)
