On April 22, 2018, we celebrate Earth Day. The Dominican Center: Spirituality for Mission believes that the created world is holy; earth, our common home, is where God is found. We support actions that raise awareness of our need to preserve and protect earth and we pray for insight and a change of heart in those who pollute. The theme for Earth Day 2018 is: END PLASTIC POLLUTION. Instead of choking our oceans and our landfills with discarded plastic, it is time to be creative and resourceful. One example: the people of Flint MI collected empty plastic water bottles and sent them to a textile manufacturer in Greensboro, NC where they were transformed into fabric for clothing. Other plastic has been recycled into furnace filters. This is the time to creatively choose sustainability over destruction. Today’s heresy of “more is better” harms our limited natural resources. On this day, we ask God’s blessing on our efforts to protect earth.
