    Jesus tells us those who believe in Him, the same works He did when He walked this earth, we shall do also (John 14:12). He also gave us the commission to preach the gospel that is at hand, and "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out devils, freely you have received freely give" Mt. 10:7). We have also received the mandate to go and teach others to do the same (Mt. 28:19-20).

    I’ve been on a zero waste/plastic free journey for a few years.  It’s changed my shopping habits and made me more aware of how important it is to support local and indie businesses.  I have some habits that I’ve completely changed, others I’m working on and others that are in the development stage.  Milk is one that has been a challenge for me.  I drink a fair bit of milk because I love milky coffee in the morning and also tend to eat too much boxed cereal- especially when I get busy.
