The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof! - Psalm 24:1
Thanks be to God for resurrection joy and the gift of this good creation. In this week of Easter, we give thanks for new life, for life over death, and for the hope that pervades the hard realities of pain and suffering. Taking Christ's witness and love into the world, may we celebrate this Earth Day today, during our Earth Day Sunday worship services (whenever they might be most fitting), and in daily commitments in our personal lives.

Blessings and peace to you in this special week, and throughout the year!
