Holy Week this year has a surprising twist. The international observance of Earth Day and the Christian church’s celebration of Good Friday converge on April 22. To many in the church this will come as an unwelcome intrusion. I’ve learned in my years as a pastor not to schedule anything that would compete with the rhythms of Holy Week. I’m still reminded occasionally by the keepers of the church calendar about the year I agreed to do a wedding on the Saturday before Easter. I won’t do that again. For others, the threat of this coincidence goes much deeper than potential scheduling conflicts. They will see this as a sacred-secular fault line in an ongoing cultural struggle between two opposing ideologies/Craig Goodwin, pastor of Millwood Presbyterian Church of Spokane, special to CNN.

Question: Which observance will you participate in today — Good Friday or Earth Day? Or both?
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — After months of debate the Spokane Valley City Council made changes to the city's chicken regulations.Those changes make it possible for people who live with in the city limits to own chickens on small residential pieces of property.
Craig Goodwin has four chickens in his backyard right next to his children's swing set. “They have names, yeah, Eagle, Chrysanthemum, Daisy and Honolulu,” Goodwin, a self-proclaimed chicken person, said.
Goodwin says his four chickens produce two dozen eggs a week, but that is the only source of food they supply for his family of four. “I think the general rule is, if you name your chickens, you don't eat them,” he said.KXLY.com More here.
What do you think about the urban chicken trend? Do you have chickens in your backyard?
