Creation Care: Conservation - Tony Plews 2019

“We are at odds with the very environment which we depend upon for our very lives… all of creation, Paul says in Romans chapter eight, is groaning; the whole of creation is groaning, awaiting its redemption. And that also points to the amazing thing, that our ultimate salvation, our redemption is not going to be the mere spiritual salvation of our souls to live on a cloud in some ethereal existence, with the Father forever - that God’s plan for redemption is for the renewal of EVERYTHING He has made - the whole creation.”

And we are called to follow him where he went, and beyond” - Summer Hendry
