MOTHER'S DAY

On Mother’s Day it is also important to consider those who lost their mothers, those who grew up in a single family home without a mother, those who never knew the comfort of a kind mother, those who were put in adoption by their mothers, and those who wanted to be mothers but could not be. However you celebrate mother's day this year, remember to show a sensitivity & love towards these individuals & realities in our community as well. 

"Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” - God (Isaiah 49:15)

EARTH DAY!

EARTH DAY!

  • Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Earth Day is Sunday April 22

“What kind of stewardship practice could I implement daily?"  "Do my habits reflect my heart for God and a kindness and consideration for others?” "What could I actively change right now to live more by conviction?" As servants of a loving and involved Creator, each of us is accountable for his/her stewardship of this planet and the life with whom we share it. Earth day is certainly a good time to reflect on personal convictions and consumption habits.

Here are some ideas to help begin your pilgrimage in better stewardship:

traveller-3213992_960_720.jpg
  • Commit to learn 1 new thing each day about better stewardship of the land, animals and the planet.

  • Start a "Green Daily" journal and document what you discover, learn and read

  • Try going a full week without purchasing any plastics. Look for alternative packaging

  • Replace fast fashion shopping with thrift store shopping (Good Will, Salvation Army etc...)

  • Put a recycle bin in specific areas of the house where you are tempted to throw away recycle items as trash (paper, plastics etc.)

  • Surrender 1x use plastic shopping bags for reusable cloth bags. (keep them in your trunk for easy access)

  • Plan your route to work and take the bike instead of the car

  • Quantify fruits, veggies, seeds and nuts over meat consumption

  • Offer a carpool service to your neighbors or try the Edmonton bus system

  • Start volunteering at a community garden

  • Choose to say "no" to Styrofoam (a ubiquitous, non-biodegradable product). Opt for washable travel mugs instead
