|Dear Readers, I am Passing This E-mail on because Our Environment is Far Too Important not to. Unfortunately, I live in the State of Ohio, whose Governor has sold Our Water and the future of Our Food Supply to Big Oil and Big Gas Companies. It is the Hope and Pray of this blogger to be the voice of reason in taking back Ohio's Future and hopefully and prayerfully the rest of the Country and the World will learn from Ohio's mistakes:|
You know the story. Big Oil & Gas has pretty much bought and paid for Congress. We must accelerate our transition to clean energy, and we must reclaim our government at the federal, state and local levels.
Today's Worship Theme was-->
A woman finds healing by touching Jesus' cloak, and a girl is restored to life when He takes her by the hand. In both cases a boundary is crossed: in Jesus' time the hemorrhaging woman was considered ritually unclean, polluting others by her touch, and anyone who touched a corpse also became unclean. In Mark's gospel Jesus breaks down barriers, from His first meal at a tax collector's house to His last breath on the cross as the temple curtain is torn in two. We dare to touch Jesus in our "uncleanness" and to live as a community that defines no one as an outsider.
Yes, we do have a responsibility to take Good Care of each other and our world, for this is what we will be leaving behind for future generations--We Owe It To Them To Take Care Of The Environment--So That We Can Hand It Down To Them.
