September 1 to October 4 :: The Season of Creation
Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children — Sitting Bull, Sioux Chief
I’ve written so much on here about our endeavor to reduce our environmental impact. Often I wonder if my individual efforts make any difference at all. My conclusion is: it doesn’t matter. I cannot step aside from my responsibility to make this life and planet as whole as possible for those who will come after me. So I continue on in my efforts to leave as small an environmental impact as possible.
Others are in a position to call the big corporations and nations into action and accountability. I am proud to be part of a church that takes this responsibility seriously. Churches of all types are gathering together for a Season of Creation from September 1 to October 4.
I will be praying, but I will also be posting pictures throughout the Season of things that help me, encourage me, and inspire me in this endeavor.

My primary Bible: The Green Bible. I love this Bible because every day when I pick it up it is a quiet reminder to do my part. The front includes some essays from a variety of writers and the back has a study section. Passages that emphasize Creation are in green ink.
