Intentional Community and Creation Care: Loving Your Neighbor

I found, as I spoke through the passion that God gave me to understand Creation Care and the Church’s necessary role in that, that I am still obviously processing through what it means to be not just a personally responsible steward, but what it will take to encourage Christian unity behind the issue. And I also found just how much raw passion, excitement, and experience is already ripening among the Church’s members to work together; how that interdependent reality of Nature is reflecting and reflected by the interdependent identity of the Church and her members.

How and Why Creation Care is Fitting for The Church.

Creation Care is about acting as one in a faithful community, to restore God’s creation from the brokenness that our own wrongs have caused. The greatness about this is that God already enables and empowers us because we identify with Jesus. So we don’t have to worry about how often we fail, when we really identify with Jesus. And we don’t have to be intimidated by the enormity of restoring creation as much as possible, because we identify with Jesus. Jesus is our comfort, our strength, our joy, our empowerment, our freedom, our restoration.
