There is a saying that is Aboriginal Australian in origin and it reads:
If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time.
But, if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.
My liberation is bound up in yours, and yours in mine. We must work together to bring about God’s Kingdom – that is how our Creator intended it.
We know God calls us to be Stewards of the Earth – we hear this in Genesis 1. We also know that God calls us to love one another – that the greatest commandment of all. But how do these two things intersect?
