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
