Lent 2021: A Time of Gratitude

Lent 2021: A Time of Gratitude

This Lent EarthConnection is offering an opportunity to reflect and give thanks for all the beauty that surrounds us in our environment. This year

has been a difficult one for everyone. The inability to gather and be with family and friends; the loss of those close to us has touched us deeply and there is deep mourning throughout the world. Yet God is in our midst each and every day if we only have eyes to see. You are invited to keep a Creation Care Journal jotting down each day a positive thought from your reflections. If you choose not to write but simply reflect, that is fine also.

Voices that Challenge

Pablo Garcia Borboroglu

Millions of penguins protected thanks to this man.
 
As the founder of the Global Penguin Society, Argentine Pablo Garcia Borboroglu has helped millions of the seabirds throughout the southern hemisphere.

Around half of the penguin species are threatened and ocean plastic, pollution, overfishing, and climate change are all to blame. Through his work, he’s educating a new generation in penguin conservation and enlisting countless people to help their local environment in Argentina. Borboroglu also has a hand in improving conservation policy and has worked with others to protect 13 million hectares of marine and coastal habitat, including the 3.1 million hectare Patagonia Azul Biosphere Reserve.

When we work in conservation, the goal is to change the behavior of people,” he says. “The behavior of wildlife? You cannot (change) that.”
