“A sower went out to sow his seed.
And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path and was trampled,
and the birds of the sky ate it up.
Some seed fell on rocky ground, and when it grew,
it withered for lack of moisture.
Some seed fell among thorns,
and the thorns grew with it and choked it.
And some seed fell on good soil, and when it grew,
it produced fruit a hundredfold.”
After saying this, he called out,
“Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.” Luke 8:5-7

Season of Creation Day 19:
How do we maintain hope?
Take a moment to reflect on the photo.
"We are changing all the time. You become what you love.
You’re always asked to sort of stretch a little bit more. But actually, we’re made for that.
There’s a song that wants to sing itself through us. And we’ve just got to be available. Maybe the song that is to be sung through us is a most beautiful requiem for an irreplaceable planet, or maybe it’s a song of joyous rebirth as we create a new culture that doesn’t destroy its world.
But this moment we’re alive. You are alive. So you can just dial up the magic anytime."
— Joanna Macy, Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re in Without Going Crazy.
Two perspectives from Pope Francis' Letter, Laudato Si' :
"The deterioration of the environment and of society disproportionately affects the most vulnerable people on the planet: Both everyday experience and scientific research show that the gravest effects of all attacks on the environment are suffered by the poorest..."
"May our struggles and our concern for this planet never take away the joy of our hope. Our faith calls us to hope."
We hold both in prayer.

Holy Mary, we entrust our lives to you. Teach us to live in peace. Inspire us to act justly, to revere all God has made, to include all God’s children in the way of Love. Root peace firmly in our hearts and in the world.
O Mother, you know the sufferings and hopes of the world: come to the aid of your children in the daily trials which life brings to each one, especially those most in need, and be our guide as we follow the way of Jesus in faith, in hope, in love.

We don’t often think about snacks in the Bible, but surprisingly they’re there! While there were likely no cake pops or ice cream in the kitchens of our matriarchs and patriarchs in faith, they still had a sweet tooth—especially for honey! Do an online search of the Bible and read through more than 60 references to honey. Honey has become a symbol of God who can satisfy us with a most pure, joyful sweetness. The Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashana recalls the significance of honey, especially remembering how God cared for the Israelites in the desert by feeding them manna, which tasted like “wafers made with honey.” On this first day of Rosh Hashana, let us, with our Jewish friends, wish one another a good, sweet year ahead, trusting in the providence of God.
TODAY'S READINGS: 1 Corinthians 15:12-20; Luke 8:1-3
“Accompanying Jesus were the Twelve and some women . . . and many others who provided for them out of their resources.”

Season of Creation Day 18:
The footprints we leave behind are as important as the path we will follow.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
We all flow from one fountain Soul. All are expressions of one Love.”
— John Muir, Our National Parks
For most people, transportation is the largest percentage of their carbon footprint. What are your opportunities to make an improvement? COTAP.org (Carbon Offsets to Alleviate Poverty) offers 25 suggestions here: cotap.org/reduce-carbon-footprint/
On this 18th day of the Church’s Season of Creation, how you are moved to respond? Perhaps you have chosen a response in one of the three dimensions: spiritual, lifestyle or public policy.
Please comment one thing you do or wish to do for the Care of Creation. Let us share do-able ideas and encourage one another to make a difference for our world, ourselves and future generations.
