Why care for creation? - “The correct relationship between human beings and nature is that of cooperation with God. It is a noble calling to co-operate with God for the fulfilment of His purposes, to transform the created order for the pleasure and profit of all. In this way, our work is to be an expression of our worship since our care of the creation will reflect our love for the Creator. ” John Stott, The Radical Disciple
