Ecological education. Family Faith Focus 9 September.

September 9.  One Saturday the Johnson family decided to go out into the countryside, take their tent and go camping. When they had put up the tent everyone was hungry but they all helped to prepare their simple meal.   Later mom said thoughtfully, “In creation and in daily life there must be a right order of doing things.  God created everything but gave to mankind the task of caring for creation.  This allows people to use but not abuse nature and the environment.”

The disciples plucked and ate some heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands. “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry he and those who were with him, how he entered the house of God and took and ate the showbread, which is not lawful for any but the priests to eat.  From Luke 6:1-5  

Pope Francis. Ecological education can take place in a variety of settings: at school, in families, in the media, in catechesis and elsewhere. Good education plants seeds when we are young, and these continue to bear fruit throughout life.  LS213
