Pray for Creation2020-03-28T12:22:20-04:00

The mission of “transforming people and places by sharing God’s love for all of Creation” truly cannot advance without prayer. Whether we acknowledge it or not this is spiritual work – caring for God’s people and God’s places always is. And aligning our hearts together to ask for the healing of creation will change real people and places far beyond our own efforts.

This work also requires a deep commitment to prayer because an important part of stewarding Creation entails giving it back its voice – to praise and to lament on creation’s behalf.

Bird On Gloved Hand

In the words of the great poet George Herbert:

Of all the creatures both in sea and land
Only to Man thou hast made known thy ways,
And put the pen alone into his hand,
And made him Secretary of thy praise.

Beasts fain would sing; birds ditty to their notes;
Trees would be tuning on their native lute
To thy renown: but all their hands and throats
Are brought to Man, while they are lame and mute.

He that to praise and laud thee doth refrain,
Doth not refrain unto himself alone,
But robs a thousand who would praise thee fain,
And doth commit a world of sin in one.*

* The poem is called Providence.  George Herbert was a University of Cambridge Don and the university’s Public Orator, who in 1628 left his prestigious post and became a parish priest. Over the next three years he wrote one of the most outstanding collections of poetry in the English language, before dying of consumption at the age of 39.
