This Lent – Reduce Your Carbon Footprint!

Today is Ash Wednesday, and the beginning of the Christian season of lent. Lent is a season of fasting and humility; of remembering that we are sinners deeply in need of the grace of God who created us out of the dust of the earth.  But lent is also a time of repentance and growth.  When we remember that we are part of God’s Creation, not Lord over it, we can prune down our egos, make room for spiritual growth and begin to understand what it means to be called into stewardship of God’s creation.    

Traditionally, Lent is a time when Christians review their own lives and ask God to help them purge it of practices that prevent them from experiencing spiritual growth and the fullness of life in Christ.  This lent, as you review your life and ask God to help you prune your unfruitful branches (John 15), remember that you are a part of the whole of God’s creation and consider how your daily actions impact the abundance of life for the entirety of Creation.

Think about lowering your carbon footprint and reducing your contributions to global warming pollution.  Consider joining the Carbon Reduction Campaign and find out how to begin pruning areas of your everyday life that are harmful to the entirety of Creation. Click here to learn more.
