[Quote] Jesus and Creation Care

We cannot claim to love God while abusing what belongs to Christ by right of creation, redemption and inheritance. We care for the earth and responsibly use its abundant resources, not according to the rationale of the secular world, but for the Lord’s sake. If Jesus is Lord of all the earth, we cannot separate our relationship to Christ from how we act in relation to the earth. For to proclaim the gospel that says ‘Jesus is Lord’ is to proclaim the gospel that includes the earth, since Christ’s Lordship is over all creation. Cape Town Commitment 1.7a

How true!

Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.

– Garrison Keillor
