The following reflection is written by Rev. Frank A. Edmands of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio. It is made available from "Interfaith Power and Light, a religious response to global warming" (www.interfaithpowerandlight.org).
"Good Friday is called 'good' by many people because on that day Jesus washed away the sins of humanity to create a new creation. Unfortunately a new creation on Earth is not evident. Humanity still sins against one another and against creation.
"Today, many citizens of the Earth cry, 'We want more and more.' Global consumerism and consumption is convicting the hope for sustainable living; and Life on Earth as we know it is suffering an involuntary death sentence."
