Tomorrow, Saturday March 27th, between 8.30pm and 9.30pm, will be Earth Hour. We are encouraged to turn off all our lights during this hour to conserve energy. It is hoped that by doing this we gain awareness of climate change and understand the importance of looking after the environment.
Earth Hour is an Australian initiative that began in Sydney in 2007 but is now an international event. Last year thousands of cities and towns in 88 countries took part to demonstrate their commitment to this cause.
I don’t see myself as an activist and I don’t follow many causes, but I do think that looking after our environment is important. Our Lord calls us to be the earth’s custodians. In Genesis 1:28 he names us rulers over all the living creatures. To be a good ruler we must look after all that God has given us, and this includes the environment. Let’s start treating it as both a responsibility and a gift.
