Reflection for the Week - February 29

There is a high degree of inconsistency in the way many Christians view nature. When it comes to natural beauty, God is seen to be the marvelous Creator, but when it comes to evolution, nature somehow loses its voice to be able to “speak” of God at all. The former is convenient and supposedly bodes well for a “safe-keeping” of the doctrinal status quo, while the latter is full of challenges and theological implications that might cause us to have to modify or radically change some perspectives. For the sake of credibility, let’s be more consistent and open to new possibilities that nature offers for understanding more about God, ourselves, and the world.
