Description: This bulletin insert or adult faith enrichment handout inspires people to become better stewards of nature and the environment. Genesis 1:1-19 and Psalm 104 teach us that all creation is sacred. God made everything and declared it “good.”
We don’t worship creation, but by appreciating it and protecting it, we worship the Creator. This is why St. Francis of Assisi could genuflect before every person he met, even very un-Christian folks. He bowed to honor the creation God had made, no matter how unlike God the person behaved, and in so doing, he worshipped the Lord in every person.
Ideas for use: Social Justice Committee, bulletin insert around Earth Day (April 22) or the Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi (Oct. 4), RCIA, etc.
