Happy Earth Day

It has been a while since I posted, and today is Earth Day, 2008. This is not a feast day that is on our liturgical calendar, although we are approaching what is known as Rogation Sunday which could easily be considered the church's Earth Days.

Here is a good website for Earth Day resources and above is a picture of our beautiful planet. As it turns out, I was a particpant in the first Earth Day observance held on the Mall in Washington, DC in 1970 - truthfully, I had never seen anything quite like it then or since.

Here's a question - how will you be exercising greater stewardship of the creation this year?

Almighty God, in giving us dominion over things on earth, you made us fellow workers in your creation: Give us wisdom and reverence so to use the resources of nature, that no one may suffer from our abuse of them, and that generations yet to come may continue to praise you for your bounty; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The Annual Brick Church Service...

...was quite wonderful this year. The weather was damp and chilly, but spirits were glad. People were especially stalwart in their picnicking. Our preacher was the Rev. Andy Morgan from Prince George Winyah Church in Georgetown and it was a good day all around. Here are some photos taken and shared by Kay Muschick Schneide. Kay is an artist who posts her painting daily here Check it out! March 30th has a sketch of Brick Church. Thanks Kay!

Here are some of her pictures from the service and picnic
