Mother Earth is Angry


Mother Earth is Angry
 
Earthquakes and storms
 
Not once but again and again
 
The hottest day ever
 
Wildfires and droughts
 
Wildlife gives witness
 
That climate change is real

 
Mother Earth is angry
 
And we are too busy
 
Too busy to confess
 
Too busy to repent
 
Too busy to change
 
Too busy to read the Bible
 
The Earth is the Lord’s

 
Mother Earth is angry
 
100-year storms no longer wait
 
We can no longer wait
 
Our children's children
 
All across the world
 
Will suffer our failures

 
Today is a gift
 
The Earth is our home
 
The Lord of Creation is our God
 
We must do better
 
Starting today
 
 
Be encouraged

Bishop Julius C. Trimble
