William Shakespeare once wrote, “All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players.” But what of the animals and creatures of the Earth? Join us as we begin a new worship series examining humanity’s relationship with the Earth and our environment. Throughout the Old Testament and wisdom literature, we find references to nature itself as an actor on the world’s stage and a rich tradition of personification of the elements of nature itself. Listen this week as Pastor Tony Minear, Ph.D. compares the ancients’ point of view about nature with a 21st century lens matured by reasoning and scientific fact. Explore the possibilities for our world when we align our contemporary lens with that of ancient wisdom and make God’s love real for all the world’s players, including nature.
