Creation care


Creation care is a priority for both the national Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Hawai’i. A friend who is both an active Episcopalian and environmentalist, sent me this link (http://www.pullen.org/2018/10/21/reality-grief-hope-three-urgent-prophetic-tasks-to-the-environmental-crisis/) to a sermon, “Reality, Grief, Hope: Three Urgent Prophetic Tasks to the Environmental Crisis,” preached by the Rev. Nancy Petty at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh on October 21, 2018. My friend commented that the Rev. Petty had received an ovation from her congregation at the conclusion of her sermon. After reading the sermon, I understand why. I encourage you to take a few moments to read her thought-provoking, very timely sermon.

The waters around the world will rise no matter if by nature or the results of our desire for material objects that affect the environment. Do we need pandemics or world wars to reduce the population? Will many give up their personal property to reduce pollution? What about the loss of jobs if we don’t buy extravagant items just to beautify our homes or desires? Should we let people die without so much medical treatment to prolong life? What will the world be if everyone lived to 100 or more? I doubt if we can make these difficult decisions. Prayer will not make it better.
