Fall is here! I have always loved fall. Not just because of the gorgeous fall colors, warm sun and crisp air, and the smell of freshly sharpened pencils... but also because it feels like a time of new beginnings. Yes, fall means the end of summer, but it is also the beginning of a new season, a new school year, and new opportunities to get inspired about caring for God's amazing creation.
This Sunday was Rally Sunday at Our Savior's - the first day of the new Sunday School year. To help teach our children about the importance of caring for creation, each Sunday School class will build its own recycling box to be used for recycling paper used during class on Sunday mornings.
To decorate their recycling boxes, the students will cut out pictures and words that portray or describe something of God's creation from magazines. Here is where you come in: we need magazines!
Our Savior's is holding a magazine drive during the month of October for materials to use in the Sunday School Recycling Box Project. When the students are finished decorating, the left-over magazines will be taken to the recycling center. So bring your magazines to church during October; collection boxes will be placed in the back of the Sanctuary. You were going to recycle you magazines anyway, right? Let us reuse them first and then we'll recycle them for you!
Take this opportunity to care for creation by recycling your used magazines, but so much more importantly, by helping us teach our children the importance of our Christian role as Earthkeepers.
