The ice on Greenland is melting three times faster than two decades ago. From ice caps and glaciers melting during the time span of 2003 to 2008, 50 gigatons of water flowed into the oceans.
Creator God, I worry about the way our climate functions. It seems as though the earth is off balance. What more can we do? You have made all of us stewards over the earth, but sometimes we fail to follow through. Help us to find ways to take care of your creation. Give us courage to stand for the earth and all of its inhabitants. Amen.
