Trinity United Reformed Church St Albans
As I write to you, St Albans is currently in
the middle of a two week event called
‘SusFest’. This is a celebration and
promotion of ways we can look after our
planet and make our way of living less
damaging to our world and the creatures
we live with.
I expect you all know about recycling, and
reusing our things, but we still need to do
more, and perhaps think of some new ideas.
God does expect us to look after our world.
We know that especially because of two
bible stories: the stories of the beginning
of everything, and the story of Noah. Both
these stories are from the first book in
the bible, Genesis.
In the stories of the creation of the world,
we read that we have a perfectly formed
place to live, and God gives us the most important job of looking after it all. This is
called ‘Stewardship’. In the story of Noah, God gives him the job of protecting all
the animals from a great flood.
We just have to do the same thing, and work out how to look after our planet now!
Look at the videos on this page and the next to watch those stories again, and get
some more ideas about sustainability:
