Join Ben Thurley in confronting our leaders’ inaction on climate disruption.
God’s Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss.
Uncle Dr Terry Le Blanc says, “Indigenous theologians always start at Genesis 1, Western theologians often start at Genesis 3.” Genesis 1:2 speaks strongly to Aboriginal peoples. I love reading this verse and looking at Safina Stewart’s painting, “Heaven Came Down”. Land, sky and all creation are brought together by the Creator into relationship and community. Community that looks like unity in diversity. Community that not only says, but does love their neighbour as themselves. Community that loves their people neighbour, tree neighbour, plant neighbour, animal neighbour, bird neighbour, fish neighbour, land neighbour, water neighbour, sky neighbour - loves their earth neighbour.
Take action by connecting to Jesus and the earth. Stand barefoot on the ground, or place your hand on a tree, and pray for all your neighbours today. Pray also for a deeper understanding of the community of interconnectedness you are part of.
