Dr Cecilia Medupin Dept of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Manchester Dry, cracked and crazed the water-bed lies empty, the earth is thirsty, rain is slow to come, this news is hidden, floods have filled the headlines, the prophets now, not heard, might well be dumb. This is the earth the ground of life, our being, our home to share, to nurture and protect, a gift of God for us and all God’s creatures, to use our knowledge, work to good effect. As people wait, the wells of life are barren, how long, O God, before your people learn that we must live and love and work together, to answer needs that science can discern. The brightest light of wisdom dims in sadness, if we ignore the needs of all the earth, if selfishly we dominate creation, deny the love once given at our birth. Great God, earth mother, father of creation, we plead and cry that you will hear each voice, then motivate your people, bring fresh waters, till earth can sing and once again rejoice!

Prof John Evans Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, University of Southampton To work with God we need to learn each nuance of this earth, the way the planet shifts and moves, its treasures, all their worth. We search out every finite source, yet sometimes lack the care to measure out just what we need, to leave some resting there. And now we start to comprehend not just this worldly wealth, but how its use can build, enhance, or damage earthly health; not just the strength of humankind, but climate’s synergy, the balance on which life depends for its vivacity. So now we learn to understand the calling of our race, to stand in watch, to call and act, within each time and place; not just renewing white bleached bones or raising dead to life, but clothing every word with love, where hatred once was rife. 7/6/2021 Andrew Pratt Words © 2021 Stainer & Bell Ltd, London, England email@example.com .
