Earth Day 2012

Earth: the planet on which we live.  Environment: the air, water, minerals, organisms and all other external factors surround and affecting a given organism at any time.  Sustain: to support, hold or bear up from below.
Steward: a person who manages another's property or financial affairs; one who administers anything as the agent for another or others.

The definition of being a steward - from Webster's College Dictionary - struck me today as I was about to post    a piece on Earth Day.  A steward is a person who manages another's property.  We don't OWN this planet - it is a work of the Creator and for the use of all who came before and will come after us.

How can we best be stewards of the Earth's environment?  What can we do to sustain life, ecosystems and the diverse riches of creation?

Sunday, April 22 is Earth Day.  Here some resources to check out:
