The Rev. Jay Lawlor continues his series on America's Goals with Goal 6, the importance of the stewardship of resources and the protection of people and planet.
INDIANAPOLIS, IN, US, March 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Rev. Jay Lawlor continues his series on America's Goals for 2030. In his sixth article he explores Goal 6: Sustainable Infrastructure, Resilience, and Innovation, and the connection with being good stewards. Following is the Rev. Lawlor's article.
n the middle of the 20th century, America built a network of roads, bridges, and telecommunications second to none in the world. Yet for several decades, we have underinvested in maintaining and modernizing our infrastructure. Our states are now filled with broken-down roads, closed bridges, mass congestion, and bottlenecks in rail and seaports. Our dilapidated infrastructure costs us time, aggravation, and income. Rebuilding America’s infrastructure for the 21st century will boost jobs, productivity, resilience to floods and storms, and our capacity to innovate. (Source: America’s Goals)
6. Sustainable Infrastructure, Resilience, and Innovation
6.a 100% of roads, bridges, railways, airports, sea ports, levees, and dams in good repair
6.b Plans to make every community resilient against natural disasters
6.c Enhance scientific research and technological capabilities
Infrastructure was not something Scripture really addresses. However, modern infrastructure supports vitality and opportunity for our citizens. It is difficult for a number of the other goals to be as effective with a crumbling infrastructure. It is also a matter of safety and making sure our infrastructure is sustainable. Caring for the well being of people and planet — all God’s creation are of paramount importance in faith traditions.
