On this Saint Francis Sunday we come together with our beloved pets, knowing that we all are part of God's creation. God cares about all that he has created, and as we are made in His image we must strive always to protect our planet and its environment, and to care for all those other creatures beloved of God with whom we share it. There are practical actions we can take every day, and remember that creation care is about giving our hearts and hands to the relationship that God has in mind for us.
The Scripture references are Isaiah 5:1-7, Psalm148:7-14, and Philippians 3:4b-14. The Gospel reference is Matthew 21:33-46.
