Glory and Cost: JPIT meditation for 1 April

Glory and Cost: JPIT meditation for 1 April

The Joint Public Issues Team offers reflections for Pray and Fast each month. In the April reflection, JPIT team member Steve Hucklesby reflects on Earth Hour and Holy Week, concluding:

 
We are reminded again this week that the journey to which we are called is not without cost. We may feel that national monuments, when devoid of their floodlighting, lose some of their magnificence at night. In our houses reducing electricity consumption may come at the cost of some of the comforts and conveniences to which we have become accustomed. It is likely that our calling to care for God’s earth will involve some human cost. What matters more is that our actions are guided by love of God and a desire to realise security for future generations. In effective actions we might find a beauty and peace taking us beyond our instincts to consume born out of human self-interest.
