Creative Ways to Celebrate Earth Week
Updated: April 23, 2021
Happy Earth Week! We hope you are getting a chance to enjoy the beautiful spring weather and connect with nature this week. Here are some ideas to try:
Grounded: take your shoes off and step onto the grass. Feel the connection between your body and the earth and close your eyes. Say a prayer of thanks to God for His creation.
Take a photo or short video of a Creation Care activity your church is doing to celebrate Earth Month and email it to Cares4Creation@gmail.com. At our next Eat, Pray, Grow meeting on April 27 from 12- 1 p.m. we will play a slide show of all of your great work! Here is the Facebook event for you to RSVP and share.
- Pray for creation and for our leaders to act to protect the earth. Below is a wonderful prayer by Pope Francis.
- Most of all, take the time to do something you enjoy outside this week! The garden, hiking trail, bike path, river, lake, and beach are calling you. Bring a child and share your love of nature with them to pass it on to the next generation.
