One of the lectionary texts for this coming Sunday is the beautiful first story of creation in Genesis.  (There is a second story of creation as well.  Check it out in the second chapter of Genesis.)  God created.  And God continues to create.  And much of what we do as humans leans more toward the destruction of creation instead of acting as stewards of God's amazing world and cosmos.  In a week following our own country's President turning his back on concrete steps that the rest of the world knows will lead to a healthier creation, let us wonder together how we as God's people, as Glade Church, can be a voice for creation and act in ways that will sustain this incredible gift.
