In 2017, God planted a seed in me to be an advocate: for us, as the Church, to reclaim our duty to love and defend His creation. It has always been important to me to be a voice for the voiceless – and who is more voiceless than those that cannot speak? With a broken world comes broken people, creatures, lands — all of which need the restorative power of Christ — and I believe that we must live our lives carrying out His ministry of reconciliation. It is my dream that one day all will know God as Creator, and honour that relationship with Him.

Caring for creation is simply a way of loving God and His people. Loving God by honouring what He has created and not purely for our own exploitation, and loving people by protecting this Earth which all of us live on. Seeing how climate change, environmental degradation, rising sea levels etc affect the lives of other humans and non-human beings, I often ask myself, “Can I say that I truly love God and people if I continue to live in the current manner which contributes to these things?” While it is impossible to revert everything back to how perfect it was in the beginning because of sin, I believe we can still do our best to live in harmony with the rest of creation.

Back in 2017, God broke my heart for His creation as I watched a video on the impacts of climate change. During my trip to Canada, I fell in love with nature and my fascination with the intricate web of life deepened. Observing the interconnections, I feel closest to God and the entirety of His creation when I’m immersed in nature. My heart pains to hear of the suffering experienced, but have faith that God will renew His world as we partner in His redemptive plan. As such, Creation Care isn’t just a calling for “green Christians”, but rather an integral part of God’s purposes and biblical mandate for all.

I care for creation simply because they are God’s beautiful creations. As we live among His creations, I believe that we should do our best to protect and love not only the nature that surrounds us, but the people too! Caring for creation also sparks many meaningful conversations that starts from a simple curious question of “what is creation care?”. As I learn more about creation care and and do more for it, I am compelled to continue loving creation as a way to bring glory to God.

This quote has stuck with me and guides the way I think about creation care: “Care for creation honours the Creator”. Caring for the earth honours God our Creator whom gave us this earth to steward. I see God in life that is abundant and flourishing in nature, and that encourages me to take good care of creation. As I grow in appreciation for the natural world, I grow more deeply into relationship with God as well.

Being in the midst of creation has always been a key way I experienced God, to be amazed by His handiworks and witness the grace that continously sustains all life. Caring for creation helps me to remember my Creator, that in sustaining, He holds the whole world in His hands. And even in the brokenness, He promises to redeem all of creation. It is also a wonderful and humbling form of worship: while it is not solely on us to redeem creation, God still calls us to participate in this work of tending and loving His creation.
