World Environment Week 12-20th September

September 12, 2010

Happy World Environment Week!

Use this week to celebrate the Creator through enjoying this creation and being better stewards of it.

Some of the ways you might do this are:

  • take a walk somewhere you would normally drive. Try doing it all week!
  • plant something
  • only buy things that you need. try doing this all week!
  • use everything in your fridge before it goes bad this week
  • ‘waste time’ enjoying God’s creation as you go about your day.
  • visit the zoo/garden/aquarium or similar
  • re-read the creation story and enjoy again the wonder of God’s amazing creativeness.
  • reuse something
  • drink only water this week

How does caring for the planet fit with our everyday lives. These books may give you some ideas to start with!  They review well, although I am yet to read them. Will let you know when I do.

‘It is a witty, story-based approach to the green conversation. Green Mama is a project for moms who are too busy to think about composting but really want to make a difference. It’s for moms who believe that God created this world and actually cares about what we do with it and how our kids experience it.’ by the author

“This engaging book has everything you need to understand the climate change debate: facts, answers, stories, and of course Scripture. It will inform the merely curious or answer the skeptic or equip the person who wants to fix the problem. I loved it!’ Amazon review

Leave a comment and let me know how it goes…. or what you are doing already to care for the planet. I would love to hear your thoughts.

*** I have changed my appearance of the blog to celebrate… but just for this week!

    Lovely post. Thank you for the reminders. I especially like that you spun it around the idea of us being better stewards of the wonderful planet God has given for our use.

      Let me know how you go Meredith.
      4 year old and I have so far walked somewhere we normally drive…. and picked flowers along the way!
      It was lovely, and we chatted with gardeners who were also out enjoying the sunshine this morning.
      We picked about 15 different flowers (overhanging onto the footpath). God’s creation is awesome.
      Enjoy the week!
