Rev. Susan's Newsletter

Stewards of God’s Creation

In a couple of weeks I am finally going to get to ‘open’ my 2019 Christmas present from Byron – no he didn’t misplace it, or hide it – I’ve just had to wait for the restrictions to ease and the nicer summer weather to experience it, as together we will be enjoying a Meet and Feed the Meerkats experience at Millets Falconry Centre. We love learning more about the animals and finding out how they are cared for by the staff.

I’ve always loved animals and enjoy little better than being around them or being able to spend time taking in wonderful views of rolling countryside or ocean scenes. One of the relatively new places (for us) that we’ve discovered over the last couple of years is Devil’s Dyke. Walking some of the trails

just before dusk is an amazing sight and quite unspoiled by human intervention. Unfortunately though as we’ve sat near the car park at the end of the day there’s clear evidence that people have been around – discarded water bottles, food wrappers etc.


Similarly when we visit Brighton by the end of the day the bins are overflowing and the beach is covered by all manner of rubbish, which is often being picked over by the seagulls and other birds. We hear so much about the rubbish and plastic in our seas and the awful effect it is having on our sea creatures, fish and birds. It may sound like a distant problem when we are told of plastics washing up on an uninhabited Pacific Island but you only have to

see photos of turtles ensnared in plastic to realise it should be a concern for us all.

I am aware that many of us here in Chelsfield, Green Street Green and Pratts Bottom are concerned about our environment and I’m sure that we all do our best to recycle whenever possible and use our “bags for life” but perhaps we can take some extra time as we enjoy our beautiful summer weather to reconsider our choices when it comes to caring for God’s creation. For as Christians we are called to be stewards of God’s creation, to care for all that he has made.

"You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being." (Revelation 4:11)
