In Genesis, God gave humans a few jobs. One of them was to tend and watch over the creation God had placed them in (Gen 2:15). This task has never been taken away – which means, we too, are to tend the earth. There are many ways to do this, but on Sunday April 19 we are going to have a garbage clean-up day to tend to our little patch of earth here at the corner of Sutherland and Main.
It will start at about 1pm. You can either bring a lunch and eat it together (the fun option), or you can get some lunch elsewhere and come back (the less fun but no shame option). Depending on how many people come, we may just cross the street and clean up the blocks surrounding us too! Let’s be a blessing to our neighbourhood and tend the earth at the same time.
Bring gloves and don’t wear sandals! Garbage bags will be provided. If you have one of those garbage picker-uppers, bring it too.
Sunday, April 26, 1pm.
