Earth Hour 2017 – Saturday, March 25, 2017

Earth Hour is an annual event on the last Saturday in March in which people around the world turn their lights off for one hour. Earth Hour began ten years ago in Sydney, Australia. Since then, businesses, government organizations, communities and political leaders have taken part. It’s a small way of giving people everywhere a voice in supporting efforts to maintain a low carbon future for our planet. In previous Earth Hour observances, landmark buildings throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas have stood in darkness for one hour. In Canada, look for Earth Hour to be observed 8:30 - 9:30 pm Saturday evening. (Choose another hour, if it works better for you.) Our actions today will define our tomorrow. See https://www.earthhour.org/ for 2-3 minute video clip.

Reflection for the Fourth Sunday in Lent

Associate M. Kathy Chadwick lives in Florida. I think the Spirit is challenging us to see as God sees this Lent. I have been very conscious of seeking to truly “see” each person this week.

“Not as man sees does God see, because man sees the appearance but the Lord looks into the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7

          Lord open  my eyes so that...

                    I may see you in all  I encounter

                    I may be able to look beyond the appearance and see the heart

                    I may see you in the beauty of nature

                    I might seek the truth and look past the falsehoods

                    I might be open to the message, regardless the appearance of the messenger

                    I might not judge by appearance

                    I may appreciate the gifts I have received

                    I may look only for the good in others

                    Seeing the pain of others I will become more compassionate

                    Seeing the suffering of the poor, I will become more generous

                    Seeing the problems in our society, I will work to find solutions

                    I will see areas where I can help others

                    I can bring a little light to those who live in darkness.

Lord, open my eyes and light my path on this Lenten Journey that I may rejoice in Your Easter victory over darkness and death.

Who is St-Patrick of Ireland?

Patrick of Ireland is revisited every year by Irish Americans in a quasi-nationalistic-religious way in the days leading up to March 17th. The songs of the many revolutions and dreams of the Irish are sung and cried over; the dancers kick up their heels; the marchers parade, and the drink is passed around freely. Aside from the initial greeting of “A Happy St. Patrick’s Day to ye,” few even mention the man for whom we have the holy day/holiday.
