Make your local area a bit cleaner

I thought it was about time we got back to Lent. One of the challenges this week is to make your local area a little bit cleaner. You are asked to take carrier bag and collect enough rubbish to fill it and then throw it away in a bin. I started off Lent doing this each day on Hampstead Heath… but I soon discovered that I had improved the area where I walked the dog and didn’t need to do it everyday. I then then went to the park and thought I could do the same there. But then I found someone else collecting rubbish and so I didn’t need to do it there either.  If everyone is more careful with their rubbish and others are prepared to pick up the rubbish from those people who do not bother, what a more beautiful world we would have. The world that was created by God and is loved by God.
