Christian Ecology Link prayer topic for today

Kingsland Primary School in Stoke on Trent has invested £11,000 in a decommissioned S-360 commercial aircraft to provide a new classroom. The project, called “Kings Wings” not only provides more learning space but also teaches the pupils about recycling. The head teacher said: “The children’s imagination has been fired up by the idea. They are enthused and motivated and we are sure this will lead to improved attendance, give better opportunities for speaking and listening and will raise attainment. The project has caught the wider community’s interest and our aim is to use the aeroplane as a community learning resource too.”

Important Lessons from the Bible

Why Jesus came:
"that the world might be saved through him"
John 3:17

Who Jesus is going to use to save the world:
"For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God."
Romans 8:19

Our role on earth:
"The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it."
Genesis 2:15

The Five Pillars of A Christian Theology of Sustainability

1. God is the creator, sustainer and redeemer of creation.

2. Covenantal Stewardship (we have a covenant with God as stewards of the earth).

3. The creation-fall-redemption paradigm (God made a good world; human failure broke the relationships between god, man and creation; Christ provides hope for all creation).

4.Bodily resurrection(we will rise with bodies, not as spirits)

5.New Creation (a new Heaven and new Earth refers to a renewal and an earthing of heaven, not starting over).
