Scripture Readings: 1 John 3.16-24
‘Not just words and talk’
In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
Some time ago, an episode of David Attenborough’s latest series Blue Planet II seemed to make an incredible impression on people. It showed, graphically, the mess we are making of the oceans. Two thirds of the planet is covered by oceans. In the complex ecosystem of Planet Earth, healthy water is essential for a healthy planet- all life depends on it. But we are in danger if slowing killing the seas and the life within them. But way far out to sea, there is tons of plastic floating in the ocean. Not only is it unsightly- it’s dangerous to sea creatures of all kinds. The Blue Planet series was a reminder of how we have failed in out stewardship of creation.
