Take Action!

Living into community with all that has life is a big and challenging task. It is also a joyful work. As Jesus  reminds us, "nothing is impossible with God." We can’t all do everything but we can all do something

It is my conviction that God is at work in the human family,  helping us to understand through science, theology, and experience the need for us to take steps to live into community with all that has life; and to do it better than we have been. 

I want to be a part of this movement that I percieve God is doing. Do you?

The vision and the goal in all of this is PEACE. Peace within the human family and peace between the human family and all other forms of life that call this good earth home. The path to peace is to partner with God in this work; to live rooted in relationship with God and to follow the example of Jesus; embodying his servant heart in the ways we relate to all that has life and taking special care to include those who are most vulnerable, rejected, and forgotten as he did.

Some of the big environmental challenges of today involve habitat, invasive species, pollution, overpopulation, and over-consumption.

Healthy habitat for all that has life is within reach, but it requires our collective investment.

Again, we can't all do everything but we can all do something.

Let us all consider what one new thing we might resolve to do, give up, or reduce as part of our daily/weekly rhythm in order that each of us might do our part to live into community with all that has life.

Here is a link to the website of an initiative  called racing extinction that I found helpful.
Remember, we can’t all do everything, but we can all do something. What changes will you make in your life as we live into community with all that has life in Jesus’ name?

I invite you to share in the comments.


  1. I'll get this thread started; Erin and I have spoken of expanding our vegetable garden this year, so that is one new thing we will be doing as one of our ESR's. Last year it was installing energy efficient light bulbs in our living space.

  2. Honestly, I’m uncertain of what more I can do.
