(BBC) How climate change is making inequality worse, especially for children
Children born in high-income countries will experience twice as many extreme climate events as their grandparents, new research suggests.
But for children in low-income countries, it will be worse. They will see three times as many, say researchers at the University of Brussels.
Watch it all (a little over 4 1/2 minutes).

(BBC) Young more likely to pray than over-55s – survey
Young people in the UK are twice as likely as older people to pray regularly, a new survey has found.
Some 51% of 18 to 34-year-olds polled by Savanta ComRes said they pray at least once a month, compared with 24% of those aged 55 and over.
It also found 49% of the younger age group attend a place of worship every month, compared with 16% of over-55s.
The associate director of Savanta said the numbers could reflect the move to online worship during the pandemic.
"51% of 18 to 34-year-olds said they pray at least once a month, compared with 24% of those aged 55 and over…49% of the younger age group attend a place of worship every month, compared with 6% of over-55s." https://t.co/PWmQNzF4HA

(New Scientist) US army to 3D print concrete buildings and bridges in disaster areas
The US Army Corps of Engineers can now print concrete barracks, bunkers and other structures in challenging environments. Its Automated Construction of Expeditionary Structures (ACES) programme has also drawn up plans to create the world’s first 3D-printed vehicle bridge, and prototype printers should be in the field next year….
“Our priority was to develop a capability utilizing 3D printing technology for use in an expeditionary environment, specifically suited for military purposes,” says Megan Kreiger, program manager for additive construction at the US Army’s Engineer Research and Development Center in Vicksburg, Mississippi. “That means it has to ship in a container, it has to use local materials, it has to work in a dirty environment and it needs to be able to take a beating while still remaining reliable.”

A Prayer for the (provisional) Feast Day of Paula and Eustochium
Compel us, O God, to attend diligently to thy Word, as didst thy faithful servants Paula and Eustochium, that, by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, we may find it profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness; and that thereby we may be made wise unto salvation through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.

A Prayer to Begin the Day from Frank Colquhoun
Blessed Lord, who putteth down the mighty from their seat and exaltest those of low degree: Save us, we beseech thee, from pride and vainglory, from self-seeking and false ambition. Give us a humble and contrite spirit, that we may think less of ourselves, more of others, and most of all of thee, who art our mighty God and Saviour; to whom with thee and the Holy Spirit we ascribe all praise and glory, now and for evermore.

From the Morning Bible Readings
The Lord reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad! Clouds and thick darkness are round about him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. Fire goes before him, and burns up his adversaries round about. His lightnings lighten the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness; and all the peoples behold his glory.
It's a beautiful Tuesday morning! #chswx pic.twitter.com/wyGdYVHRXs
