Tending to Creation
And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be
fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over
the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living
thing that moves on the earth.”(Genesis 1:28)
Earth is sacred, and we have a responsibility to protect and cherish it.
One of our priorities at Immanuel Anglican Church is ensuring we are living up
to our responsibility to care for creation. This includes environmental
sustainability, prudent use of resources, and conservation of the assets
entrusted to us.
actions can we take to not only improve the environment, but improve the
quality of life for citizens in our community? How can we be good
stewards of the earth?
