Nature Is Our Sister

Posted on Posted in Faith, Uni

“The essence of all pantheism, evolutionism, and modern cosmic religion is really in this proposition: that Nature is our mother… The point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister…”

[GK Chesterton]

I’ve been doing a fair bit of research on climate change lately as it’s been a focus for us as social action team at GUCU. I put together a short powerpoint-type thing with some of the biblical basis for why we should care about which we showed at CU last night, and then gave out some flyers with practical steps we can take. Thought I’d post the flyer up here, click for a larger image.

Sign up at icount for some more ideas, and check out Tearfunds stuff… they have a really good booklet called For Tomorrow Too which I used a lot.

The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.”

[Rom 8:19-22]
