The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for he has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers. – Psalm 24:1
That the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. – Romans 8:21
Almighty God, in giving us dominion over things on earth, you made us fellow workers in your creation: Give us wisdom and reverence so to use the resources of nature, that no one may suffer from our abuse of them, and that generations yet to come may continue to praise you for your bounty; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen - Prayer for the Conservation of Natural Resouces, BCP 1979.
