Welcome to It Is Well Living Church, where we emphasize the importance of community and society's faith and beliefs. In this article, we delve into the teachings of the renowned theologian, John Stott, and his perspective on caring for God's creation.

The Significance of Environmental Stewardship

As believers, we have a responsibility to be good stewards of the Earth, recognizing that God has entrusted us with the care of His creation. John Stott, a devoted Christian and influential figure in the contemporary evangelical movement, emphasized the importance of environmental stewardship.

Understanding Sustainable Practices

Stott believed that sustainable practices and environmental conservation align with our faith and demonstrate our commitment to God's commandments. By embracing sustainable living, we actively participate in caring for the Earth and its resources for future generations.

Caring for God's Creation: A Biblical Perspective

In his teachings, John Stott drew upon Scripture to support his view on environmental stewardship. In the Book of Genesis, we find that God entrusted the care of His creation to humanity. As such, it is our duty to preserve and protect the natural world.

The Interconnectedness of Creation

Stott emphasized the interconnectedness of all aspects of creation. He believed that neglecting the environment not only harms nature but also affects the well-being of humans and impacts social justice. Understanding this interconnectedness allows us to appreciate the importance of sustainable practices.
