On the Earth Day yesterday, I took my family to the clean-up event of the Guilford Run Stream, which runs alongside Guilford Road in front of the Lutheran church.

The event was organized by a coalition of interfaith group, comprised of Islamic, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist and Episcopal religious groups in the city.

Some 25 members of the group attended the event. It started at 5:30pm and continued until 7:30pm.

After the event, I talked to Pastor Jim Vigen of the Lutheran church.

It’s great to see so many of the community members came together to make this happen. Our earth is a shared place – thus we all have the collective responsibility to take good care of our planet.
