John 10:11-18

 Earth Day calls us to think beyond today and into the future as we are called to Nurture God's gift to all the world, our Planet earth. We are one people under one God on this one planet. We must consider each other.

The planet is an inter-related community. We are in this one boat together.

Our greed and shortsightedness has put our planet home in jeopardy. We have, as symbolized by my wife Erica's art creation "The Coracle" put a whole in our boat and we are all going to die unless we change our ways and stop worrying about today and start thinking into the future.

Climate change is real.We can start at a personal micro level and at macro levels. We are called to build community in the name of God and nurture the earth.
