1 FIRST LUTHERAN CHURC H 408 Ninth Street NW Mandan, ND Phone: Fax: Building Faith and Transforming Lives in Christ. We re on the web! Tammy-Lapp Harris C W Sponsor for this month: ADDRESS LABEL April 2016 First Lutheran Church First Lutheran Staff Administrative Pastor Rev. Lee Herberg Associate Pastor Rev. Christina Martin Administrative Assistant & Coordinator of Lay Ministries Jackie Schulz (o) (h) Custodians Ron & Mavis Watson Financial Administration Jennifer Scheet April Newsletter Jeremiah 17:7-8 NRSV 7 Blessed are those who trust in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. 8 They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit. There seems to be a lot of new interest in the color 'green' lately. The city of Mandan implemented recycling this past January to have its citizens embrace recycling as a lifestyle. For myself, I can t believe how much less garbage I now put out to the curb Thursday mornings. Now every other Thursday, I wheel my green recycling container out and its usually full! As a society, we are being called to 'go green' Maybe this spring we could also try and 'go green with God'. Why go green with God? God is involved in the ongoing creation of the universe and of our home, Earth. God creates and calls it good and dwells in the whole creation. God appoints humans to be hands-on caretakers of God's creation. Human life is dependent upon the health of the whole creation; we are Earth creatures. The Earth is under a great deal of stress due to our broken relationship with creation. Humans need to find a new way to live in harmony with the Earth in order for the Earth to heal and thrive. Caring for creation is a joy, a gift, and a responsibility. As Christians, we worship and act from a place of gratitude and vocation rather than fear or guilt. First Lutheran Is A Mission Partner with Camp of the Cross Ministries As we contemplate our responsibilities as Christians who are called by God in the book of Genesis to be caretakers of the earth on God's behalf, let us look at our relationship with the earth as one of ongoing gratitude, wonder, and humility. Sometimes at night, I like to sit outside for awhile, and look up at the stars. In those times, this prayer comes to mind. For the earth and the gift of good land, we give thanks, O God. For the beauty of our winters, we give thanks, O God. For the anticipation of a new growing season, we give thanks, O God. For those who work the land and those who bring us food; for the abundance of food and the opportunities to share, we give thanks, O God. Give us grace to be patient in suffering and sensitive to the pain of others. Help us be caretakers of this planet earth so that we may realize your kingdom where we are. Amen. Until next time, Pastor Lee
