Lenten Calendar from Creation Justice Ministries

In Lent, we reflect on Christ’s ministry, death, and resurrection. We slow down, and examine our internal spiritual lives as well as the way we live out our Christian faith in the world. Our faith teaches us that humans were put on this earth with the responsibility to be stewards. We also know our individual as well as collective U.S. lifestyles have led to serious harm to God’s good creation. This Lenten reflection and action guide will help individuals take time to learn, reflect, repent, ask God for forgiveness, and take concrete steps to change course.

Change Light Bulbs to Eco-Friendly Types

CFL and LED bulbs can emit 25-80% less energy than traditional incandescents, plus they last longer! Consider this greener alternative when it comes time to replenishing those bulbs.

The Example of Joseph

With God’s leading, Joseph used the seven years of plenty to store up food, preparing for the coming years of drought and famine (Genesis 40–43). His action served not only the Egyptians but also the surrounding foreigners, including his own family. How might you be a “Joseph,” working now for a better future for all? What are you doing now to address issues around climate change?
