creation 2

“Creation is not something apart from us; it is part of us and we are part of it. When the land is violated, when animals are exploited and abused, when the streams are polluted, that is the stuff of our personal creation that is desecrated. We don’t own this place and so we can’t do with it whatever we wish. We are this place, an identity that we have in common with all our earth-neighbors.”

– Eugene Peterson in Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places

“…the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.”

– Genesis 2:7
