Christian Ecology Link prayer topic for today

A study by UK Water Industry Research called “Maximising the value of biogas” appraises technologies for producing biogas from sewage sludge. Conversion of biogas to biomethane, already well established in Europe and beyond, provides all the advantages of natural gas, from injection into the national grid to use as a vehicle fuel. For water companies the best application would often be the use of biogas in CHP systems, converting up to 40% of the energy contained in biogas into electricity. Measures to increase production of biogas from sewage include optimisation of digestion plant operation and pre-treatment technologies to ensure greater volatile solids destruction.

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).
