Earth Day 2009

This morning while surfing the internet I discovered it was Earth Day.  Later this morning, I went to the Wesleyan website and was reminded of our statement on creation care.

Psalm 24 reads:

1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.
The world and all its people belong to him.
2 For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas
and built it on the ocean depths.

I thought I would post the link which speaks of the Wesleyan position on creation care.  Here is the preamble of the document

The psalmist wrote “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it” (Psalm 24:1). Yet any honest reader of the newspaper or thoughtful observer of current events must acknowledge that all is not well with this earth that belongs to our God. As the earth’s population grows and humanity’s ability to impact the created order increases, we face an increasing and intensifying cluster of environmental concerns.

The Wesleyan Church believes that creation care is an important social issue of our day and that the time has come for us to take energetic, intentional steps toward more effective environmental stewardship.
