Earth Sunday invites us to focus on the ecology of our earth.  The text from Acts 11:1-10 talks about how Peter became open minded, and the text from Revelation speaks of a "New Heaven and a New Earth."  Receiving the promise of a New Earth invites something from us, a commitment to hope, a belief in resurrection.  Like a pond that has been polluted, if left alone, in time nature will reclaim it.  Such is the resurrection message we will explore further this Sunday.
