Week Three: Toxins

  • What types of household cleaning tasks integrate environmentally friendly, low-toxicity cleaning products?
  • What organic pesticides do I use in the garden and on the farm?
  • Do I use organic manure for the garden/farm needs and avoid chemical fertilizers?
  • What are the industries in my geographic region that are not meeting air quality standards?


A Psalm of Thanksgiving

You visit the earth and water it,

you load it with riches;

God’s rivers brim with water,

to provide its grain.

This is how you provide it:

by drenching its furrows, by leveling its ridges,

by softening it with showers, by blessing the first-fruits.

You crown the year with your bounty,

abundance flows wherever you pass;

the desert pastures overflow;

the hillsides are wrapped in joy;

the meadows are dressed in flocks,

the valleys are clothed in wheat

what shouts of joy, what singing!

(extract from Psalm 65)
