Sundays in Trinity

Tomorrow sees the beginning of the 'Green Sundays' of the year, the weeks after Trinity. I used to think that the coming 25ish weeks of green were weeks of sameness but no longer as a few years ago I twigged that the Green Sundays serve as a good reminder to all of us to remember and care for God's green creation with love and respect. Worshipping at the Good Shepherd, Murrayfield makes this task a bit easier because of its placement within a garden. The Good Shepherd Church sits on a green hill, on a leafy avenue. When you enter the lovely garden you cannot not be moved to think of God's good creation. The rich greenness of creation that we love and depend upon for our health and well being. Yet all too often, we humans forget this and destroy the green land we have been given. We forget that we are called to be careful stewards of the world. For me this is why the Green Sundays are important because they remind us that we are called to stewardship of the earth and not its exploitation.
