CREATION IN CRISIS: MEDITATIONS ON EARTH, WATER, AIR, AND FIRE
The season of Advent marks something momentous: God’s coming into our midst. That coming is not just something that happened more than two millennia ago; it offers an ongoing opportunity for rebirth in the here and now. And it compels us to consider a second, future Advent—the promised coming of God’s kingdom on earth. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, God’s coming is not only a matter of glad tidings, but “frightening news for everyone who has a conscience.”

If the essence of Advent is expectancy, it is also readiness for action. By meditating on the theology of “Creation Care,” and by connecting ourselves to the elements of nature, we can learn, advocate, and bring about spiritual awakenings. Only then will we be telling the real story of how “the whole creation has been groaning in labor pains” (Romans 8: 22) as a human-induced climate crisis envelopes and consumes our planet home.
