The world has seen another year come and go. Time passes so quickly!
As we pass from one year to the next, it is common to reflect on the previous 12 months. The good times and bad, our successes and failures, the impact we’ve made or have not made on our fellow man and our community.
There is a story of a Master who must go away for a long time. He entrusts his talents to three of his servants. Two of his servants worked hard and doubled the value of the Master’s talents. The third servant was afraid and buried the talent, which added no value. When the Master returned, he was pleased with the first two servants but furious with the servant who buried the talent.
This beautiful planet is ours and provides everything we require to live. Like the servants in the story, I believe we have been entrusted with a gift…this Planet Earth. I believe we are expected to pass it from generation to generation in better condition than we found it…not the same, and certainly not worse.
So as this new year begins, I ask you to join me to take time to reflect on what we’ve done to help give the next generation a healthy planet.
Remember, there is still no Planet B.
