Creation Care Corner (article taken from Abundant Times)
We are called to do what is right, even if it requires more effort.
Written by The Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, Missioner for Creation Care
From Sept. 1 to Oct. 4, the Diocese of Western MA will unite with Christians around the world in celebrating a special season of prayer and action to protect God’s creation….
“As the environmental crisis deepens, we Christians are urgently called to witness to our faith by taking bold action to preserve the gift we share. As the psalmist sings, ‘The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein’ (Psalm 24:1-2). During the Season of Creation, we ask ourselves: Do our actions honor the Lord as Creator? Are there ways to deepen our faith by protecting ‘the least of these,’ who are most vulnerable to the consequences of environmental degradation?”
“We invite you to join us on a journey of faith that challenges and rewards us with fresh perspective and deeper bonds of love. United in our sincere wish to protect creation and all those who share it, we join hands across denominations as sisters and brothers in Christ
