Neil Adams, South Africa “More than 10 years ago, I took our youth on a hike from Rhodes to Kirstenbosch. Seeing the awesome beauty of Table Mountain up close and seeing that the young people were enjoying it, I knew that I could not keep this and all other hiking experiences to myself. I want to show off the beauty of God’s awesome creation with as many young people as possible, so that they can not only enjoy nature, but get to know the God that created all of this.”
Help others connect. Contact your pastor to lead a nature walk or meditation in your parish.
Help those around you reflect on the gift of creation. Ask your pastor or parish council whether you may lead a nature walk, plant a tree, or simply guide a group reflection on scripture or other teachings. In addition to enriching the spiritual life of the parish, these activities can be a special way to bond ministries.
However you decide to share the message of hope for God’s creation, your work is a wonderful gift.
