Practical prayers for Earth Day 2008

Joni Overton-Jung, C.S.B.

Where do you start if you want to pray about environmental issues? How do you deal with neighbors who are trashing the environment? Can a spiritual approach to environmental issues have a practical effect?

Answering these questions and more, Joni shares personal experiences from her work in the Peace Corps and at home in Canada that illustrate how taking the time to love God and your neighbor—whether it’s a stranger in Zimbabwe, or someone next door—can result in healing for ourselves and the world at large.
