This Sunday is Earth Day. Every little action on our behalf not only affects the environment immediately around us, but can have global ramifications because of the interconnectedness of our ecology. May we do what we can to work on cleaning up and keeping clean the world around us. 

Let us pray,
God, may we use our collective voice to advocate for a planet that lacks one. May we use our collective energy as a push towards making long-lasting change in the hearts and minds of those nearest to us. May we recognize that we are running out of time with every passing day that we do not work to help our environment. We pray this in the name of all that is good and holy. AMEN
