A Day of Darkness and Gloom
“The created world is not ours to control, own, or occupy. For we are a part of creation and must find our place in the family of things.”
What is one thing you can do during the season of Lent to care for the created world around you?
Blow the trumpet in Zion;
sound the alarm on my holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,
for the day of the Lord is coming, it is near—
a day of darkness and gloom,
a day of clouds and thick darkness!
Like blackness spread upon the mountains
a great and powerful army comes;
their like has never been from of old,
nor will be again after them
in ages to come.
