For its 16th Anniversary, Singles for Christ (a catholic community) – Pampanga Chapter marked its program and celebration to have fun and enjoy at Pampanga Agricultural College at Magalang last October 24, 2010 while everyone were gathered to praise, worship, proclaim, and glorify the Lord God our Father, his son Jesus Christ and with the guidance and enlightenment of the Holy Spirit. The selected theme for the said event was taken from the book of Jeremiah Chapter 17 verse 8; “They will be like trees growing beside a stream . . . trees with roots that reach down to the water, and with leaves that are always green. They bear fruit every year and are never worried by a lack of rain.”
Highlights from the day’s pastoral conference were activities using talents in dancing and choreography in the dance interpretative competition, those who are musically-inclined participated in the eco-jingle contest and those who have the guts, good looks, poise and mental power and understanding were candidates for the Mr. and Ms. 16th Eco SFC 2010 who flaunted their fantastic and ingeniously created costumes from recycled trash.
In the dance category, four groups used recycled materials in their costumes ingeniously and creatively such as sacks, cds, silver part of foiled drinks, bottle caps, straws, silver part of cigarette packs, old newspapers and magazines, a section of broom for head dress adornment, etc. Who would have imagined that particular kinds of litter can be transformed into wonderful outfits?
During the dance presentation, everyone were awed and got tongue-tied with the pride of central, south and east sectors of Pampanga SFC. As the host of the annual occasion, the north sector performed as well with their opening production and intermission numbers from the SFC North leaders, youth of Gawad Kalinga Teens and Sagip Kids.
Attendees were reminded of God’s original plan for man and that is everyone is called to live the GREEN LIFE which is completely free and is for everybody.
Just like what is put emphasis on in the verse in Jeremiah, all of us can live in an abundant and verdantly green environment once more if everyone can go back to the time in Genesis when God created us and every living thing to be the caretakers of His majestic creation then the future generation can savor and experience a true green planet. The supportive members of Singles for Christ are just but a small community who can commit to rebuilding a GREEN LIFE.
But Ronald Flynn of TGEG and SBSC has said yes to a green life and can do more than individual habitual changes in proper waste management and segregation at home, school or work. He has discovered about the biosphere technology which requires a biosphere machine to eliminate, recycle and process municipal solid wastes in landfill sites from various towns and municipalities. Though it is not easy to change and start living a green life, this breakthrough will convert waste to electricity with the Material Recycling Facility. The massive garbage accumulated from these landfill sites would one day generate electricity for thousands of homes. Hence, it will establish a green energy company called True Bio Electric and True Green Planet will emerge to provide valuable resources for different industries producing jobs in return.
As a TGEG advocate I had witnessed the whole day affair and was surprised to find out that more people are now becoming aware of their role in saving the planet whatever their religion may be similar to Ron Flynn’s vision who has seen his purpose which is to save the planet and fight pollution with biosphere technology. He is a man with a fearless mission of helping our mother earth restore its natural beauty and splendor by taking TGEG’s vision of a waste-free philosophy to heart.
SFC Greeneration wants us to “Save Mother Nature and Live a Green Life.” TGEG reiterates the role given to us upon creation, “we are the caretakers of our green planet and we all are her earth warriors, for our earth is our home.”
