This passage of Scripture includes, both questions, "What must I do to be saved?" and "Who is my neighbor?" Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself." We see from the story of the Good Samaritan that our neighbor is anyone who needs our help. It is how we show love for God and for our neighbor.

Sustaining Earth, Our Island Home
âI would like to share with you an initiative from the National Episcopal Church's office of the Most Rev. Michael Curry. "Sustaining Earth, Our Island Home" tackles the Episcopal Church's pledge for the care of creation and provides support for individuals and parishes seeking to take those incremental steps toward living in a more sustainable, moral manner when it comes to the impact we have upon the Earth and our capacity to continue to live on it. To paraphrase Bishop Bascom the biggest environmental problems are not biodiversity, water usage, or climate change but greed, selfishness, and apathy.
To learn more about this program, please visit http://www.sustainislandhome.org/ and enroll yourself in this program. Please remember to list St. Aidanâs, Olathe as your parish. Our Bishop will reward the parish with the most participation.â
