LET US CREATE A CLIMATE OF CHANGE
Lord, in the joy of your Creation,
The whole human family has received
this unique gift from you:
our planet Earth.
We sincerely thank you, Lord!
Lord, look on our EARTH and
help us to recognize that it is urgent that we act…
…for we are destroying our forests,
devastating our soil,
and polluting our seas.
When we do this,
we cause changes to our climate,
and create environmental turmoil
that increase poverty in the countries of the South.
We sincerely ask for forgiveness, Lord.
Yes, it is time to act…
to guide our planet
in its development
and in its peace.

PERSONAL DECLARATION: I wish to protest the use of my tax money to support, in Alberta and on the federal level, the legalized killing known as abortion. I wish to have it known that, in spite of my protest, I am FORCED to participate through my taxes in the taking of innocent human life.
