The Green Bible

Today, on my way to work, I was enjoying a program on my satelitte radio that I often listen to on the way to work.  It was on the Catholic Network and is called “The Catholics Next Door.”  Anyways, this morning I heard about something I found quite interesting.  This week a new Bible is being released.  It is called the Green Bible

Here is an exert from the Green Bible website:

“About The Green Bible

The Green Bible is the definitive movement Bible that shows that God is green and how we can care for and protect God’s creation.

Featuring:

  • Green-Letter Edition: Verses and passages that speak to God’s care for creation highlighted in green
  • Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu
  • Essays by Brian McLaren, Cal DeWitt, Barbara Brown Taylor, Pope John Paul II, Ellen Davis, N. T. Wright, Ellen Bernstein, Matthew Sleeth, James Jones, and Gordon Aeschliman
  • Inspirational quotes from Christian teachings throughout the ages
  • A green Bible topical index
  • A personal green Bible trail study guide
  • An appendix with information on further reading, how to get involved, and practical steps to take
  • Recycled paper, using soy-based ink with a cotton/linen cover “

I think I may just have to get myself one of these to see it for myself!  It definitely is interesting, though I wonder if there is a slight marketing plan behind it. 😉 FOR SURE!  Hey, but God can use it to help Christians see it is part of our faith to care for creation.

Going Green Simply

here it is all rolled up!

I discovered in the last month a very convenient and simple way to go green–no matter what store I’m at. I bought a Chico bag.  It is the coolest invention for saving our earth from all those plastic bags!  It is a material bag that rolls up into a neat little holder that you can clip to your keys or purse or wherever you want.  I bought mine at Whole Foods Market (another great place to help us ‘go green’).  Now, I’m NEVER without a bag and I don’t have to be hassled with what to do with all those plastic bags!!!!!
