Pope Francis has just written an Encyclical
about our moral obligation to the planet and
to one another. The writing challenges all
peoples, nations, religions, groups and individ-
uals to reconsider how natural resources are
used. Climate change is not a figment of our
collective imaginations, but a reality. Ask the
folks in tornado alley and in areas where tor-
nados are not normally experienced. Consider
the floods and fires at the wrong time of the
season and in unlikely places. It doesn¡¯t much
matter who or what is to blame, but how are
we responsible to holy ground.

reality. She continued to walk with God in the
garden, accepting her responsibility to care for
and protect her garden.
