If you’ve been reading our posts for very long, you know that Ruth, Lori and I firmly believe that our faith and social justice ministry go together like cookies and cream.  But there are so many things that we can do to care for the world God has created.

More toward clean energy. Yesterday, Krissy who blogs as Vissionary Kindness commented on one of my posts.  Her community has an initiative focused on moving beyond coal to clean energy such as solar.  Not that I knew that when I chose this photo.  This is what my pastor calls a God Moment.

Promote Literacy.  Tutoring or building a Little Free Library are great ways to do this.

Get Out and Vote. One of the best ways to bring about change is to vote in candidates that also see the  need and have plans to make change happen.

Food Ministries.  This past summer, our church converted a community garden where people had their own plots to a community garden growing food for the local food pantry.  I don’t remember how much lettuce or how many tomatoes we took to the pantry, but we provided over 200 lbs of cucumbers. That was an accident because someone over-planted but what an amazing accident for those who got fresh produce.  Now we are considering planting an orchard.

There are so many things that we can do to Bless God’s Creation – the earth and the people.  Consider the things that you are passionate about.  What are they?  Remember that even small changes add up to something big.
