A few years ago, I was invited to be on a radio show to talk about Earth Day. I was excited to have the opportunity to talk about how Christians should be the first in line to care for the earth that God has given to us. Instead, I was bait-and-switched.
The host began the conversation by exclaiming, rather emphatically, that all of this Earth Day stuff is liberal crap. I was floored, and I wasn’t prepared for it to turn political like that. After all, it was a Christian radio show. After talking about how he cares for the earth, and giving reasons like he doesn’t drive down the road and throw beer bottles out the window, the host turned the conversation to me. I’m pretty sure he thought I was going to agree with him, but I stuck to my notes.
And my convictions.
