For Craig and Tracy Sorley, every day is Earth Day. Their calling and life is to teach and demonstrate that we are stewards of God’s creation, for the sake of the name of Jesus. That’s why Craig wrote Christ and Creation: Our Biblical Calling to Environmental Stewardship.
We first knew Craig and Tracy when they were college students attending our church. Later they were sent out from Bethlehem to Kenya as missionaries with Care of Creation. The importance of the Sorleys work was recognized by Time in 2008 when Craig was named a Hero of the Environment. Last year, he was also featured in The Guardian in the UK.
I’m praying that some of you will be inspired to contact Craig for more information about how to be involved personally. At least one of you is an environmental engineer or a ground water specialist or an agriculturalist or otherwise interested in community development, and you are at loose ends wondering what God wants you to do next. Email Craig and ask for his ideas.
Some of you have been wondering how to promote good stewardship of the creation and want to be sure your money is also being used for the sake of the Kingdom. I hope you will pray about helping Care of Creation.
The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof.
