In honor of Earth Day…

22 Apr

I’ve just started this book called Serve God Save the Planet. It had great recommendations from Brian McLaren and Shane Claiborne if that means anything to you (it did to me).

Will Ferrell: Earth to America

15 Mar

Any sort of political thoughts aside, Will Ferrell is funny…can’t wait for Blades of Glory to come out next weekend.

I am currently going through a book called For the Beauty of the Earth. It has some great ideas and thoughts of what it means to be a human and our responsibilities for our use of creation. Maybe I’ll blog about it some day.

More and more I am seeing people of faith understanding their responsibility for how they use the resources of this earth. Unfortunately, some believe that only those who hate God, love creation and if you recycle or drive a hybrid and consider our treatment of the earth important you must be a false teacher misleading people away from the gospel. Some big Christian names talk about global warming being a big conspiracy to get people’s attention and we shouldn’t worry about it…reason 23 why I dislike calling myself a Christian.

It’s too bad that only bad news and foolish people make the news because there are so many followers of Jesus doing the right thing, “not letting their left hand know what their right hand is doing” and therefore going unnoticed.

So my parting words of wisdom. Ride your bike more, carpool when you can and choose paper over plastic. Check out this blog for more info.
