Living Green

The Earth just got another degree warmer as I read this Washington Post article about the National Association of Evangelicals, James Dobson, and Global Warming.

I've spent the last week asking myself & Usually Darling Hubby (who is probably tired of listening) why Christians (at least those that choose to look at sin) like to focus on the 10-15% sins. Why not go after the 90% sins like gluttony & obesity or ignoring many of God's children who are struggling to survive while we lounge in our American Middle-Class luxury, safe inside our warm, well-insulated homes & churches. Even our poverty is relative!

But I realize now it really isn't about the Bible, or sin, or stewardship or compassion...it is something far more "valuable" at stake...

Pink Floyd sang about it. And didn't Jesus warn us about it?

Right on, reading cookbooks is a blast.

Thomas Green, a Jesuit who writes a lot on prayer, once stated that no one would read recipes without cooking them (in the course of encouraging people to use, not just read, Ignatius' Spiritual Exercises). In his next book he publicly retracted the analogy (though not the point), thanks to the feedback of a voracious cook book reading cousin!
