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.

"Only those who see with the heart see things properly, because they know how to “look into” each person: to see a brother apart from his mistakes, a sister apart from her failings, hope amid difficulty. They see God in all persons and things."

Season of Creation Day 17: The six R's
Christianity does not confine itself to
the reign of God in the soul;
it seeks to establish
the reign of God upon the earth.
— Fr. Isaac Hecker, founder of the Paulist Fathers, a community of Catholic priests who recognize "the multicultural reality of our society, the diversity of North American religious experience, andthe value of working together."
i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and love and wings and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
— e.e. cummings
How would you rate yourself on these R's — refuse, reduce, reuse/repair, replace/rebuy, recycle?
Refuse, make the choice not to generate waste in the first place
Reduce, make decisions that decrease the amount of waste produced
Reuse/repair, expand the shelf-lives of products; join the growing movement to RE-USE
Replace, next time consider the recycled and green option
Recycle, reclaim the raw materials
(Note that recycling is LAST on the list; it is critically important but isn’t as effective as preventing waste in the first place.)
