New Year, New Challenges

Look back at the past year. What actions did you take for the environment? Make a list, personally, with your family, or with a friend and celebrate all that you have done. Challenge yourself to add new actions in the coming year. What have you heard about or seen that you can incorporate into your faith commitment to care for God’s creation and to work for justice? 

Be a Minimalist

Start the new year with a new mindset. Along with everyone else, you’ve been pushed into seeing yourself as a “consumer”—that is, one who uses things up and tosses them out. You can make a significant change in yourself and ultimately for the good of the earth by changing the way you think. Explore being a minimalist as a practical and faithful way of being.

May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions.
