Reduce, Reuse, Recycle... In Jesus' Name!

Last weekend when I was helping out at the Matthew West concert I took this pic in the church lobby. They were located in several places throughout the lobby, and there were ones specifically for the bulletins located just inside the doors to the auditorium. You may look at this and see just a trash can and 2 recycle bins, but what I see is...

1. a church that is not worried about the look of recycle bins in their lobby.

2. a church with volunteers (someone has to collect the recycling.)

3. a church that is conserving...the bulletins are recycled in a way that they can be used again for the following services.

4. a church that is doing its part to protect the planet.

5. a church that is on the move.

I wonder... why aren't all churches leading the way with recycling...After all, isn't reducing, reusing, and recycling the very heart of being a good steward?
