Our pastor had this in the bulletin today, and his sermon was about Earth conservation, which we enjoyed. I thought it was something to remember for every day. Not meant to start a controversial discussion by any means....just a thought... Something for us all to think about, regardless of what your faith or beliefs are. The Earth is the Lord's (a Welsh Folk Hymn) Carolyn Winfrey Gillette, 2001 Creation reminds us, oh God, of your love By grace we are learning, as year leads to year We're called to be Stewards, Your caretakers here. Your rainforests nurture the world that we share Your wetlands give animals shelter and care Your coral reefs cradle the life of the sea YOu've shown us in love what your good world can be. Too often, Oh God, we abuse your good Earth WE fail to remember it's beauty and worth WE take from creation much more than we need We threaten your world through indifference and greed May we be good stewards of all that You give Protecting creation wherever we live May we be a church that renews and restores And lovingly cares for this Earth that is yours.
