Today on The Morning Thing we talked about Earth Day which was originally celebrated on April 22, 1970. To honor Earth Day, Jenna, Marcy and Daria dove into the biblical perspective of our earth and shared the Genesis story of creation.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.” Genesis 1:1-5

We also looked at different ways to celebrate this day in Knox County. Did you know that Kenyon College hosts an annual celebration at the Brown Family Environment Center? Tomorrow, from 2-5 p.m. you can see a variety of live animals up close such as hawks, owls, furry mammals and snakes. You can also build bird houses, dissect owl pellets and much more.
