Pray for Japan

Greenpeace‘s newsletter today focused on nuclear power and how science has yet to devise a method for adequately handling long lived radioactive wastes. They state that there is no such thing as a “safe” dose of radiation and just because nuclear pollution is invisible doesn’t mean it’s “clean.” They say “In order to save the future of our planet, we must continue to fight the expansion of nuclear power and instead push for clean, renewable sources of energy.” So in the meantime I thought we should do the most powerful and effortless thing we can to: we can pray! If there is one wonderful thing about blogging is the collective effort to make the world a more beautiful and more connected place. So I was wondering…
Can we all pray together? 
 
Aside from prayers please see below other ways to help…
