Day 2: Forty Days to Reflect, Forty Days to Choose

Well, we've just begun our own 40-day desert journey, and we have the same options laid before us. And we're reminded still that our decisions, both individually and collectively, affect not only our lives, but the lives also of our children's children. Our decisions can enrich the health of our planet, sustaining many new generations; our decisions can also compromise it!

Day 1: A Journey to Right Relationships

Today we can ask, “Lord, reorient my whole heart to you, in new ways.” Let us ask for a growing awareness of and compassion for those who suffer as our planet suffers.  Let us make this journey with hearts more attuned to those affected most as some of us, through privilege, greed and overconsumption, abuse our common home.
