Live with respect
This week I am in search of bamboo toothbrushes. Why? All the plastic toothbrushes ever made are still on earth in various landfills. Bamboo is bio-degradable and sustainable. As a person who tries to live in a way that "touches the earth lightly", I wonder what took me so long to make this very simple shift. Then I let go of self judgement, with a deep, invigorating breath.

The Environmental Action Group invites you to take a look at the blog post "31 Ways to Care for Creation"; pick one or a bunch and put them into action. Try not to lay a guilt trip on yourself - such a waste of energy. Use that energy to care for the earth, one toothbrush at a time!

You are invited to meet members of the Environmental Action Group this Sunday, August 23 at 10.30 am on Zoom
https://zoom.us/j/99648730942?pwd=dkpFNFFDV0VNbjlxTzZJeEs5R0ROQT09.
Listen to a "gift of music" from Steven Webb, re-connect with old friends and make new ones.

Blessings, Karen Dale [in ministry with Beach United Church]
