Good Friday, Easter Sunday, and the End of Lent

By path2positive

Today is good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ in Christian traditions around the world. In two days, Christians will honor Easter Sunday, honoring the resurrection of Jesus Christ, marking the end of Lent. The two holidays cap the end of Lent, a time in the faith and climate community that has been used to raise awareness of climate change through various forms of a carbon fast. This time of year, in it's simplest representation is about sacrifice, inclining many to abstain from harmful practices that degrade God's creation.   

Every year, we see people of faith, some Christain and some not, join to discuss, pray and take action for God's creation. While the holiday season is coming to an end, we, at Blessed Tomorrow, encourage everyone to reflect on their tremendous efforts during this time and to think of ways that we might collective sustain these exercises throughout the year. 

Here are some practices that you may easily maintain in your daily activities long after the holiday season has ended.

These steps may seem obvious, but they are often forgotten by even the most climate concerned person. They are easy and may often be completed in just a few minutes. Check out these tips and more at Blessed Tomorrow's Tools to Care for Creation.
