Week in Lent) - Any old iron? If they're on their last legs replace old electrical appliances with energy-efficient models. They could save a third of the energy.
Well, in both my apartment and in the vicarage, the appliances are fairly new. In addition, they aren't mine! So this is excellent advice, although it might be a bit expensive in the short term. Of course, that's the point, right? We have to bite the bullet - perhaps a little, perhaps a lot - now to do something for the future.
O God, you have called us to be your children, and have promised that those who suffer with Christ will be heirs with him of your glory: Arm us with such trust in him that we may ask no rest from his demands and have no fear in his service; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
