This morning's sermon slot took the form of a congregation think on Ecological issues and what we as individuals and as a congregation can do to help ourselves become better stewards of God's creation. This mornings readings reminded us that in the covenant with God, we are called be be good stewards of the earth. St.Paul reminded us that a steward is above all to be trustworthy and St.Matthew sang the praises of God's creation in its beauty and abundance. Unless we the current stewards of the earth are not careful there will be no creation to hand on to future generations. Every little thing we do to recycle or use less has an impact, often beyond our comprehension. The Congregation of the Church of the Good Shepherd is now committed, alongside our ecumenical partners, to becoming a fully fledged Eco-Congregation and doing all that we possibly can to reduce our use and increase our recycling and in doing so we hope to become better stewards of the creation we are left to caretake on God's behalf.
