Good news for the entire creation

Morning: Psalm 103; Exodus 12:28-39; I Corinthians 15:12-28

After church on Easter Day, I was grateful when someone said he appreciated this prayer: “You give life to the creation by renewing the earth in every season. Curb our exploitation of natural resources, and cause us to preserve the health of plant and animal habitats.”  The good news of Jesus is for the entire creation.  So often we address only the human dimension of the world.  Even our supposed ‘care of the Creation’ tends to be for the benefit of humans.  My friend’s affirmative comment invites ever more inclusive attitudes towards the much-more-than-human world.
