good friday AND earth day

Today we remember when our Brother Jesus gave Himself for all. We join Him as He prays, "Father forgive them, they know not what they do" on behalf of us all. We call this day Good Friday.

Father, forgive us. Raise us back to life. Make us new.

Today is also Earth Day. How beautiful that both fall on the same day this year!

As the kids watch a bit of Nickelodeon this morning, I keep hearing,

"Save the planet"
"Turn something old into something new"
"Waste nothing"
"We're all responsible for one another"

oh how theological these statements are, if you have ears to hear and eyes to see...

Father open our eyes and our ears and our hearts.


Gungor says it best in their song Dry Bones:
You're the one who saves us
Constantly creates us
Into something new
Surely You will find us
Surely our Messiah
Will make all things new
You make all things new

of course, one can't help but sing Gungor songs and think God-thoughts while spending spring break here...
