In December, I had the chance to publish a ‘Care for Creation’ tip in the Lindenwood newspaper again. I tried to remain subtle, gentle, and reasonable in this tip because I firmly believe that progress on our environmental awareness and action at church will take time and careful consideration by all our members. This was my December Tip:
Care For Creation Tip- DECEMBER
By: Reverend Sarah Taylor-Peck
Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You have established the earth, and it stands fast… Psalm 119:90
This is a season of magic, new life, silent nights and decking the halls. We are grateful and generous when Christmas comes. At our house, we are beginning to put small gifts under our twinkling Christmas tree. This month, consider wrapping Christmas presents in your old newspapers. This reduces the amount of waste we produce during the bustling holiday season.
Bonus: if you subscribe to the newspaper and you do not have a use for the plastic bags that come with it- consider dropping off your newspaper bags at Lindenwood! We can use these bags in childcare! Help us reduce the number of new plastic bags we purchase every month.
Interested in care for creation? Our First small group meeting is December 14th at 5:45 in my office! Refreshments and brainstorming. Join us! Let me know via email if you will come: firstname.lastname@example.org
