Tools for Inspiration - Flow
MY INSPIRATION When I listen to the news, I hear about deep divisions in our country and that really gets me down. But when I look around me, I see far more examples of things we have in common. This week, I heard a talk by Reverend Kyle Earley in Cleveland. He noted that in working with diverse groups in his neighborhood (Muslim, Christian and Jewish), one thing connects them all: faith. When we let our faith inspire us into action, we can can be leaders in our community for love, listening, and positive change. We can find the issues that affect our neighborhoods/community and address them together, rather than be guided by fear. What’s one thing we all have in common? The need for clean water, clean air, protected natural areas, access to health care, quality education. Realizing these common needs can help reignite our desire to work together for good, one everyday action at a time.

WOAH NO WAY Did you know that our earth is warming at a rate of 400,000 hiroshima bombs per day… or the energy of 7.4 quadrillion kitten sneezes?
WAYS TO TAKE ACTION FOR EARTH THIS WEEK: WATER
