We have become slaves to the cities we build and to the cars we drive. Trees make way for future slums and blue skies for burning fuel. Have we forgotten that it is the soil from which humanity came, the earth which each year displays the miracle of creation?

As Spring re-awakens all that is green, let us re-awaken our ties to the natural world and our bonds to the earth. We dip greens into salt water and acknowledge through our blessing that there is a Creator and a purpose to the universe, that we are partners in the work of Creation.
