Lenten Tips for Living with Respect in Creation
- Margaret Machum
Last week, I spoke of giving during the Lenten Season. I suggested we start by giving ourselves a quiet space for reflection.
Let us continue to use that space this week as we develop simple practices to help us live mindfully with love and respect in Creation while GIVING ATTENTION to the healing of our planet, our home, the Earth - and to discover how that, in turn, can have the effect of bringing us closer to God.
’Tis A Gift. Lenten Tip Week Two: Give Thanks
While sitting in your quiet space, think about the things in your life that are important to you. Write down the 10 most important things. Notice how many of them connect to the Earth. Give thanks.
