Can you give it up for the Earth for Lent?  During Lent the Green Team will have a table in the Narthex and we are hoping you can participate.  As the Earth needs our help Lent is a good time to take action.  Is there something you know you could change that would make a difference – however small – one step in the right direction is all it takes.  Could you NOT use plastic water bottles for a week or all 6 weeks?  Could you leave your car at home one day a week?  Could one or 2 days a week be meat free?  The suggestions are endless the choice is yours.  Check the lists in the Narthex and starting on Ash Wednesday, fill in a leaf and let’s make some environmentally good choices and Give something up for the Earth. Thanks from the Green Team.
