When Earth Demands a Sabbath – The coronavirus epidemic is actually bringing health … to our planet. “This might be the first time since the beginning of the Industrial Age that Earth is finally getting a break from the relentless activity and growth of human industrial production,” writes Lutheran pastor and professor Leah D. Schade. In her essay in Patheos, Pastor Schade explores the importance of Sabbath for people AND the earth. Good reading for this month of Earth Day.
