So how can we live in gratitude to God for his amazing creation? How can we discover more about God through his world? How can we embrace Scripture’s call to stewardship? How can we care for people through our creation care efforts?

  1. Great resources. I’ve worked for a A Rocha in Brazil, my homecountry, it is a great organization. Also, a good initiative is start a community garden at local churches. My church started one 2 years ago and it’s been a great experience linking creation care, food production, and helping the poor. All the produce is given away. Blessings, Paulo
