As we continue to celebrate Easter and feel the hope and joy of Christ's resurrection, let us continue on our journey that started as Treading Lightly for Lent.
The last action on the "Tread Lightly for Lent" calendar read:
"Contemplate the environmental lifestyle changes that you have made throughout Lent, and make a plan to integrate these into your life in the long term. Share about your journey with friends and family." What will you continue that started during your Lenten journey? Is there anything that you learned that stuck with you?
