Take a Short Shower for Lent
For many of us, Lent is a time to pursue more sustainable ways of living -- spiritually and physically. If you’re looking for a resource that helps you do both, check out “Lenten Carbon Fast 2010,” a 40-day calendar produced by the Archdiocese of Washington.
Each day contains a suggestion that’s aimed at checking our consumption habits. Tomorrow, for example, consider turning down your thermostat by one degree. And next Tuesday, take a shower that’s half as long as usual.
Lent is a good time to begin -- or strengthen -- habits that improve our care for God’s great gift of creation. This calendar provides concrete, manageable ways of doing just that. You can also sign a pledge to reduce your carbon footprint.
