April 14, 2020

Good Stewards of God's Creation - Episode No. 20

Genesis 1: 26 - Then God said, “Let us make humanity in our image to resemble us so that they may take charge of the fish of the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the earth, and all the crawling things on earth.”

In this episode of The Means of Grace Podcast, Kim and Jesse talk with three Western North Carolina Conference Earth Keepers about their passion for the stewardship of God’s creation. Jonathan Brake, pastor of Woodmont UMC in Reidsville; Bill Garrard, retired UM clergy, and Kim Richmond; a member at Maple Springs UMC in Winston-Salem, share with us their journeys in which they have embraced the work of creation care. They share ideas for individuals, families, churches, and communities through which we can “care” for the resources in which God has entrusted us.
