As a few of you know, last Saturday March 29, was earth hour. The call went out for us to turn off our lights for one hour, 8:30 to 9:30 in our time zone for, well, I’m not really sure what. Were we saving an hour’s worth of energy, were we supposed to protest the use of fossil fuels? Was the darkness supposed to symbolize our solidarity with the environment? Who the heck knows? And mostly nobody cared.
At first I thought I’d just ignore Earth Hour, but the more I thought about it the more I decided to celebrate. Earth is ours. It was given to us by a loving God to be our home, for our use and enjoyment. What better way to say thanks than to turn on all the lights? So that’s what I did. Hope you had a well lighted celebration of Earth Hour too.
