Join Ben Thurley in confronting our leaders’ inaction on climate disruption.
The LORD God took the ‘adam’ and put it in the garden of delight to till it and keep it.
Since time out of mind
God’s garden, gardened itself
Microbes made compost, worms aerated soil, wind spread seed
Humans arrived, struggled then thrived
Took our true purpose and buried it deep
in our subconscious.
‘abad and shamar (to serve and protect)
Became to till and keep
Then reap and keep
And reap and keep and reap and keep and reap and keep
God still waits at the gate
For the reapers to mend their prodigal ways
and come home before it’s too late
Calling through the First People of this land now called Australia
Calling through those who have left the pig pen
“Serve and protect”
From those reapers who keep and keep and keep
So that God’s garden of pleasure can garden itself
Back to health.
Take action by protecting and serving God’s creation today. Rescue a worm trapped in the sun, buy free-range, support the RSPCA or Wildlife Rescue, or sign the petition to reassess logging operations in areas of NSW affected by bushfire. Delight in a garden near you, a pot plant, a tiny piece of moss clinging to a pavement crack, the community veggie patch you pass while exercising. Plant something if you are able - something you can eat, or a native to provide food and shelter for wildlife.
