The Earth Will Teach You
Two of our ministers have recently produced resources that might help you and your church engage with creation care from a Biblical perspective.
The Earth Will Teach You is written by Kevin Durrant, minister of Matson Baptist Church in Gloucester, and published by Wide Margin. In a series of tender but practical reflections, Kevin helps us to discern the voice of nature and the testimony of Scripture as they relate to the world around us and our responsibilities to it.
Helen Paynter, Associate Minister at Victoria Park Baptist Church in Bristol, has used some of the ideas in The Earth Will Teach You to produce a series of Small Group Studies for Lent. These draw on a wide range of media, including youtube clips and music, to help groups engage with the urgent need to face our responsibility as stewards of God’s earth. Helen wrote the study for an ecumenical group to use through Lent 2015, but it could be used at any time, and she has kindly made it available as a free download:
