From our Simpler Living Ministry
Next week as we remember the life and work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and his pivotal influence on so many social justice issues, please read this Grist magazine article that pays tribute to his enormous impact on environmental justice activism.
These words remind us that Creation Care concerns are often intersectional, and how we are all connected with Creation.
We marvel at the beauty and diversity of your world. As we witness its devastation because of cruel greed and a lack of compassion, we are are also aware of your blessings through leaders who have devoutly followed your son, our brother, Jesus. We remember such a leader, our brother Martin, at the anniversary of his birth. Grant us the same courageous passion for your world that we may work for environmental justice at this crucial time. We ask this through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
