Australia celebrates Spring Ember Day this Friday, a day set apart for prayer, self- denial and helping others. Tied to the seasonal cycle of farming and harvesting, the purpose of Ember Day is to render thanks to God for the gifts of Creation and to ask his help in using them well. On Friday we also begin the Season of Creation where the Christian family unites for this worldwide celebration of prayer and action to protect our common home.
