Earth Day Origins

Interesting article regarding creation and environmental care.

I remember being elementary school in the early 1970’s  and we as as class went out to the playground to plant a tree commemorating Earth Day.

Little did I know that the special day originated from one of our Assembly Of God Ministers..

Description: Darrin Rodgers interviews John and Anna McConnell, Jr., July 15, 2009, at Timberline Church, Fort Collins, Colorado. McConnell, the founder of Earth Day, is a Pentecostal Christian whose grandfather was at the Azusa Street Revival and whose parents were founding members of the Assemblies of God.

At the 19 minute mark on the video, John begins to speak about Earth Day Origins.

Earth day this year is Tuesday April 22nd.

Plant a tree, start a garden, ride your bike.

Recycle : If you love the creator take care of His creation.

Earth Day is everyday.
