Statement of Purpose
From the very beginning of time our relationship to the earth has been defined in terms of giving and receiving, privilege and responsibility (Genesis 1:26-30, 2:15). God, the creator, is the owner (Psalm 24:1) and we are sharecroppers (Leviticus 27:30-33). Living "under God" we have two fundamental responsibilities - to fulfill the "Creation Commission" (Genesis 2:15) and the "Great Commission" (Matthew 28:19, 20). To this end our District has provided both structure and leadership in both areas.
The Creation Care newsletter is the basic educational and promotional tool that we use to help us understand our "Creation Commission" by providing relevant articles on Biblical, economic, political and social impacts and their consequences on God's Creation. Clyde C. Fry is the Creation Stewardship Advocate for our District and is available to assist our congregations.(firstname.lastname@example.org) ©-CCFry, 2-7-12
