Welcome to Healing Our Planet Earth: Singing a New Song of Hope. Your presence at this site indicates your deep concern for God’s creation. And, it shows your willingness to actively work for those changes that will bring about healing to our besieged planet, while promoting justice for the poor and marginalized who are most deeply impacted by planetary climate changes.
