Earth Day Resource
Care for God’s Creatures
Care for God’s Creatures is one of the Earth Day resources that Creation Justice Ministries puts out each year. The material explores how we learn from God’s creatures and considers the meaning of our Genesis call to dominion over animals. In addition to Christian education materials, it includes sermon starters and liturgical ideas for a Blessing of the Animals ceremony and a creature-themed worship service.
