It was very fitting that Earth Week would arrive, and I would be found already reading "All Creation Sings" by J. Ellsworth Kalas, a past president of Asbury Theological Seminary in Kentucky. This is a book that is on the UMW Reading List for this year, and I have set a goal to read as many from that list as possible.
It was also fitting that the brief time away was for a Conference UMW event called Spiritual Enrichment Experience. With the setting at Lake Junaluska, NC, it is easy to be surrounded by the beauty of God's creation.

It is our thinking that Earth Week initiatives are not limited to just this one week. We follow many practices here at our house that we hope are contributing to the betterment of the Earth. I will be mentioning them along in future posts.
I really appreciate those of you who are following along. Your comments are much enjoyed!
