"You shall not pollute the land in which you live.... You shall not defile the land in which you live, in which I also dwell; for I the LORD dwell among the Israelites." (Numbers 35:33-34)
"Thank you God for this precious earth that you have created. Thank you for the amazing diversity of topographies, birds, animals and temperatures. Thank you that we have delicious food to eat because the ground is fertile and the sun shines and the rain provides the moisture we need. God, forgive us for not caring for this land that you have asked us to administrate. Help us to be better stewards of this awesome resource. Amen"
We planted 10 trees (mostly eucalyptus) in celebration of the beautiful earth God has entrusted to us! We are hoping to plant a few eucalyptus trees today or tomorrow. We chose this species becuase of the medicinal benefits of its oil, its flowers provide food for birds and insects and it grows at a fast rate.
Let's all celebrate earth! If you're so inclined, share with us how you are helping to care for God's creation.
