I have two comments. First, Dr. Matthew Sleeth and his wife Nancy,
are hosting the first-ever, faith-based Creation Care simulcast
on April 21, 2010, beginning at 6:30 PM, Eastern. It is called Hope for Creation and should be a great discussion as hundreds of churches have already signed on to participate. All you need is a laptop to participate. My church, in Illinois, has signed on to do this as a congregation. You can learn more at: http://blessedearth.org

Secondly, Kids need to "Go Green."
In fact there is a National Movement called the "Leave No Child
Inside" initiative. Many children these days never leave their homes and computer/video games. They have done studies to show that children who don't have contact with nature when they are young are less likely to protect it when they become older. So, if you know of a child who is indoors all the time... take them out into nature... especially now that it is Spring.
