An Invitation to Share Hospitality
Hospitality: It ’ s up to all of us ... if we each brought a “ little left - over ” that is in the fridge, we ’ d have a feast! AND IF WE EACH BROUGHT A LITTLE REAL FOOD, AND LESS SUGARY STUFF, OUR BODIES WOULD BE SOOOOO HAPPY, OUR CHILDREN WOULD GREATLY BENEFIT, AND THEIR PARENTS WOULD BE SO GRATEFUL, TOO!!!!!!
HEALING HAND TO MOTHER EARTH **Warm up your engine & car interior by driving instead of idling – changes in technology & electronic fuel injection have eliminated the need to warm up before driving in freezing temps
**Turn off your car ignition if you ’ re idling for more than 10 seconds - idling your car for more than 10 seconds burns more fuel than restarting your car. Turning off your engine to text, to wait for someone or when stopped for construction are easy ways to stop spewing smog/environment - killing carbon & nitrous dioxide & help the planet as well as our beloved Lake Tahoe
**If you have school - age children, ask the principal to enforce a no - idling policy for buses & cars waiting for school to be let out
YEP LEADERS NEEDED! If it is to be, it’s up to us: Now Seeking Youth Empowerment Program (YEP) leaders for our Sunday programs, so we can keep our program alive.
