In the continuing summer series on Genesis 1, this Sunday’s guest speaker was Ren Martin. Ren is the Eco-Justice Connection Program Coordinator for the North Carolina Council of Churches.
Genesis teaches us that all of creation is a gift from God. Our response to this gift should be one of deepest respect and gratitude. We must cultivate a profound appreciation for the wonders of nature, acknowledging that every tree, every creature, every ecosystem carries God’s divine blessing. With this reverence we should naturally be inclined to protect and preserve the earth for future generations.
