Continuing our series using the #LiveLent tag, next week (16th – 22nd March) we turn to the Land and Vegetation, and we’re reading chapter 3 of “Saying Yes to Life”, as we explore the incredible beauty and abundance of the earth and all the plants which grow.
Read Genesis 1.9-13 – The earth brought forth … plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind … and God saw that it was good.
Monday – get in touch with Nature – perhaps spend time outdoors noticing any plants, trees and wildlife. Get wet, go for a walk, dig the earth.
Tuesday – find out how trees help the planet. Trees do so much to support other life around them – people, animals and plants.
Wednesday – save paper – and trees – today. Think of ways you might use less paper. What can you recycle?
Thursday – pray for people leading action on environment, who are working hard to encourage changes that will help tackle climate change and conserve the natural world.
Friday – prune your stuff! Sharing and re-using things is good for the environment. Do you have unwanted things like toys or games or clothes that you could give to a friend or donate to a charity shop?
Weekend – Take a break. This weekend includes Mothering Sunday, the half-way point in Lent. Enjoy a break and treat yourself (and those who care for you) this weekend.
