Earth and resurrection
Easter is Sunday. Earth Day is Monday. Resurrection. Responsibility. Easter is the designated annual day to remember what many Christians actually celebrate every Sunday of the year: the death, burial and resurrection of the historical person, Jesus of Nazareth. Earth Day is the annual day of celebration of our responsibility to preserve this unique planet, a task that should also be practiced during the rest of the year.
All of us seem so busy that reverent and silent pondering of our position before God and our responsibility for the place He has given us, is difficult. Perhaps we can take a little time this weekend for at least an extra portion of gratitude.
Jesus. He is the central figure of history, the one who gives the deepest meaning to life and destiny. His person, his example, his teachings, his sacrifice these are the crown jewels of existence.
And whether or not one believes that we as humans are contributing to global warming and climate change, our behavior in regard to our planet is the same: take care of it. It is a gift of immeasurable value, given to us undeserved by the One who loves us most.
