A Rocha

Sharing God's love with all creation. It's the motto of Christian conservation organization A Rocha. At first, it seems like jarringly liberal rhetoric. Is saving the whales really as important as stopping child prostitution?

But taking a step back, I realize that there's nothing so very out of line about it. Why shouldn't God love all creation? He made it -- lovingly, intricately, with great beauty. He says that if we won't praise him as is his due, the rocks will cry out to do it for him. God loves all his creation, for all of it was made to worship him. And when relationship was broken -- by humans -- it was broken not only for us, but for creation as well. So our mission of reconciliation includes not only our fellow humans, but the physical world in which we live.
