Encouraging People To Become Earth Stewards

Encouraging People to become Earth Stewards

First passion, God; second passion helping others; third passion–caring for the beauty and sustainability of our home.



“Why should we be concerned about the environment? It isn’t just because of the dangers we face from pollution, climate change, or other environmental problems—although these are serious. … We know God created the world, and it belongs to Him, not us. Because of this, we are only stewards or trustees of God’s creation, and we aren’t to abuse or neglect it. 

Billy Graham
