It’s part of our faith as Christians to affirm that we aren’t separate from the earth - we’re part of the created order. We have an incarnational faith. We come from the earth. Our baptism is of earth & water. Eucharist is of earth & bread and wine. In death we return to the earth from which we were formed. As Christians we affirm that in Jesus, God became incarnate - became a part of creation. When we take this seriously we are called to love and care for this world.
