Lenten Action!

by Beth Anderson, Outreach Associate

While we most often think of Lent as a time for giving things up, this season also asks us to recommit to our most valued practices -- to DO something.

May I suggest one simple, yet powerful, Lenten action?

Sign on to the statement about environmental health developed by the National Council of Churches, Earth Ministry, and other ecumenical organizations around the country! Its official title is:
Christian Principles for a Healthy Body and Spirit.

The Principles call for environmental health policies that will...
  1. Protect Creation
  2. Enable Healthy Bodies and Healthy Selves
  3. Seek Justice for Vulnerable Populations
  4. Promote Sustainability
Join with people of faith all over the United States and pledge your support of these Principles!

Blessings on your Lenten journey...
