Is Earth Day a pagan holiday? I don’t think so. I think it’s a great opportunity to remind Christians to be pro-active in creation care.
From Raspberries and Vinegar, page 48, where Jo Shaw is talking to a church group.
“There’s a lot of talk on the news these days about global warming, and whether or not it’s a hoax. It doesn’t matter which side of the fence you sit on. Our world is in trouble, and God’s people, who were given the mandate to care for it, are often at the front of the pack, leading it downhill.”
Claire caught Jo’s eye and gave her head a slight shake.
Right. She was getting wound up and not pinpointing the current cause. Accusing these people wouldn’t win them over. Baby steps.
“Sometimes we don’t know what to do to make a difference. Each of us is only one person out of billions. Well, today’s Earth Day. And here’s one small suggestion for change.”
To find out what Jo’s idea was, you’ll have to read the book! 😉
