We Are Powerful Together

Community Garden sign


The faith community can be an effective force for change in the environmental crisis. Surely 1.2 billion Catholics and 2.2 billion Christians, united in stewardship, could make a difference. Many churches already take the lead: converting to solar power, changing parking lots into community gardens, divesting from fossil fuels, investing in alternate energies, minimizing plastic waste, educating parishioners and neighborhoods about their carbon footprint. 


God, show me the path
To creation care that 
Rises from my finest self,
My talents and unique personality. 


With a camera, try to capture a different natural wonder each day for a week. (Extend the time if this appeals.) Maybe you’ll catch the jewels of dew on grass, the flight of a sparrow, a tight bud. This practice may sensitize you to beauty, strengthening your commitment to protect it.

  1. Lord Jesus Christ, your death brought true life and freedom. May we always walk in the freedom and power of your love and truth and reject whatever is contrary to your will for our lives. Amen.
