Care for God's Creatures -- Earth Day 2016
"Furry, feathered, finned, four-legged, and winged, the diversity of God’s creatures inspires wonder and awe. From Noah’s Ark, to barn animals surrounding baby Jesus, to Isaiah’s vision of the lion dwelling with the lamb, God’s creatures play an important role in the Bible. In the psalms, creatures give praise to God, having their own relationship with God separate from humanity. Thus, knowing and loving God’s creatures helps us better know our Creator."
How great are Your works, O God! You made them all with wisdom, the earth is full of Your creatures Psalms 104:24
We have a call to dominion over God's creatures. In a time when one in five species faces threat of extinction, what does it mean to respond as Christians? For inspiration go to Creation Justice Ministries.
Creation Justice Ministries is joining with other faith-based organizations and tens of thousands of people in a call to prayer for God's creation on Earth Day (April 22) at noon, whatever time zone you are in, wherever you are. We pray in gratitude for this moment, and for God's strength for hard work ahead.
