theWatch at: 36:40 / 37:00best boys under the best management andon posting his name we pray God shows ushis love natureamenwe'd like to thank sister decima orWatch at: 37:00 / 37:20until asthma for these children'sfeature and of course a little helperdear Jerry before we begin I would liketo say or recite a scripture job 1279which encourages us to ask nature aboutwho God is but ask now the beasts andWatch at: 37:20 / 37:40they shall tell thee and the fowls ofthe air and they shall tell thee orspeak to the earth and it shall teachthee and the fishes of the sea shalldeclare unto thee who knoweth not in allthese that the hand of the Lord haswrought this so we're moving right alonginto our discussion are you ready yes weare so our first question is just to layWatch at: 37:40 / 38:00a foundation to set the foundation ourfirst question well I would like you todefine the term environment wonderfulsister Tuvia that's a great place tostart so that some environment refers tothe surroundings or the conditions inWatch at: 38:00 / 38:20with you in which human beings plantsand animals live and operate it canrefer to a specific geographic area orit can refer to the entire earth so theentire Earth can be considered anenvironment now if you want to get a bittechnical we can talk about the types ofWatch at: 38:20 / 38:40environment our focus today is thenatural environment and that refers toall living things and nonliving thingsthat occur naturally so for example ifwe talk about a rainforest environmentthat would include our trees our shrubsour vines our grasses that would includeWatch at: 38:40 / 39:00the rain the water the air the soil thestones the animals whether they arebirds or reptiles or insects or unfitsall of that would be the naturalenvironment we can compare that to thebuilt environment which of course refersto the features and the facilities thatWatch at: 39:00 / 39:20are man-made and then there are somemore types of environments that I don'tthink we will get in today thisenvironment the psychologicalenvironment the cultural environment butall of these are influenced in one wayor another by our natural environmentall the conditions and surroundings inWatch at: 39:20 / 39:40which a plant animal or a human beinglives and operates so now that we havedefined that some environment I wouldlike you to distinguish betweenthreatens we are conservationpreservation and sustainable developmentwonderful very good question sister Tobya lot of people tend to confuse orWatch at: 39:40 / 40:00interchanged atoms preservation andconservation but the two arefundamentally different when we talkabout preservation we're referring tokeeping things in the pristine State soyou have designated this mangrove forestWatch at: 40:00 / 40:20and we're not gonna touch it we're notgonna interfere with it it remains as iswe contrast that to conservation whichmeans we try to use things sustainablyso for example right here in st. Luciaour sue free marine Management Area isan example of a conservation area whereWatch at: 40:20 / 40:40we have no tech regions we have fishingareas we have areas for recreation andall of that together makes a niceprotected area what can happen though isover time a knotek area can then becomea fishing area and a fishing area canWatch at: 40:40 / 41:00now become a knotek area so it allowspeople to sustainably manage a naturalresource and you brought up a verypopular term sustainable development andand not to get too technical but thisterm means it can be an a mouthful itmeans using resources in a way by oneWatch at: 41:00 / 41:20generation that does not prevent futuregenerations from benefiting from thatsame resource so my use of a rainforestwould not hinder my children and mygrandchildren from benefiting from thatsame resource in a similar manner inwhich I benefited from it there is anWatch at: 41:20 / 41:40all-american Indian proverb whichsays we do not inherit the earth fromour children instead we do not inheritthe earth from our ancestors instead weborrow it from our childrenso this is the the foundation ofsustainable development to use aresource in such a way that I canbenefit and my basic needs can be metWatch at: 41:40 / 42:00and I can enjoy human wellbeing but myuse of that resource does not hinderfuture generations from enjoying thatsame resource this was beautifullyexplained I must say well we have totake a short break so we can go into ournature feature done by sister Alicia soWatch at: 42:00 / 42:20this is what we are going to go into nowwelcome welcome to the nature cornerwith me Nikhil sillies I hope you enjoywhat you learned today today we'll betaking a look at Alicia's beautifulWatch at: 42:20 / 42:40kitchen garden where you'll find a lotof beautiful plants right which are richin certain nutrients that we did notknow about I do not know about it but Ijust found out and I'm glad that I foundout we use it every day such as basilspring onions thyme peppermint bay leafaka Baden which is good the fellows loveWatch at: 42:40 / 43:00to drink about any good in Cocoa Thea Iknow about it yes so the first thing toconsider is spring onions we it'sactually a good source of fiber vitaminWatch at: 43:00 / 43:20A and B 6 the other pan that would beconsidered today is rosemary some of ususe it for tea some of us use it is alsoin our feed but we actually have it youcan actually use it to prevent brainWatch at: 43:20 / 43:40aging and muscle degeneration[Music]next on the list we actually have wehave a few segments I actually have twoWatch at: 43:40 / 44:00types or three types of diesel becausethey send to be different colors may Ihave the purple I have test form and Ihave the regular basil that we usuallycall diversity it helps with skinquality so if you are looking to haveWatch at: 44:00 / 44:20better skin you can use the basil youcan drink it or you can have itand it also fights depression right

Aliciafor this feature this nature feature andremoving rights along and we'll have aWatch at: 48:00 / 48:20poem by brother Nicholsstaring into the ocean of stars justlost in the toiletstill cap with a finger in it but myWatch at: 48:20 / 48:40mind just goes crazy about itI say how could something so beautifuljust be but in my mind I know it can'tjust be there must be a master that isbehind the scenes because it protectssomeone great to create out of nothingwith such wonders over sideways andWatch at: 48:40 / 49:00under cushions all things move in onemotion through devotion pointing to himsee in the beginning he said let therebe and I can imagine the brake blasts ofcolors even those we can't Father seethese artists has majestic art pieces weWatch at: 49:00 / 49:20can understand them without him givingus inside sight to see this part East isthe greatest all our artistsimitate him nature sings and praises himwith such raw talent one would thinkthat this artist his art itselfWatch at: 49:20 / 49:40scripture dances to the rhythm of thesweet melodies every drop dripping withmouth-watering jaw-dropping art thisartist invades your minds privacy hiscreations yourself you begin to searchWatch at: 49:40 / 50:00because his emotions flow in his workrapid like the Niagara but there is morehe knows how to make a mess onmasterpiece when he picked up hiseternal paintbrush and dipped it in hisWatch at: 50:00 / 50:20glory all things changed for eternitywith one stroke of history wasestablished he took many broken canvasesand used them to speak a storyillustrating salvation once you

art is youWatch at: 51:00 / 51:20you're the part of the artist[Music]youWatch at: 51:20 / 51:40Wow this was truly a very inspirationalpoem or spoken word it was written bybrother Nichols himself and he did awonderful job at reciting it it remindedus that God is the artist of you and meWatch at: 51:40 / 52:00and everything that is beautiful innature we are moving right along wegoing back into our discussion why is itimportant to care for nature or find ourenvironmentthank you sister Tobia there are a lotof people who see that we get ourmandate for conserving or protecting theWatch at: 52:00 / 52:20environment from organizations like theUnited Nations and so forth but actuallythis is not the case before anyorganization before any agency beforeany community group or civil societygroup or nun in Vietnam government cellgroup Corps had already told us why weWatch at: 52:20 / 52:40were supposed to protect the environmentas a matter of fact we get our mandatefrom the Bible but the main reason whywe protect the environment is basicallybecause of the services that we get fromthe environment the benefits now theseWatch at: 52:40 / 53:00benefits are called ecosystem servicesnow the ecosystem services are dividedinto four categories you have yourprovisioning services you have yourregulating services you have yoursupporting services and you have yourcultural services so your provisioningservices assisted Tobia would be thingsWatch at: 53:00 / 53:20like your food your fuel your timberyour water all these we get from theenvironment you're regulating serviceswould be like pollination climateregulation water partitioning these areexamples of services we get from theWatch at: 53:20 / 53:40environment then we have supportservices like maybe our water cycle oursoil cycle without the environment wewould not be able to have food andfinally our cultural services you sawhow beautifully the systemsable to tell us about medicinal plantsthat we have a unique culture for in st.Watch at: 53:40 / 54:00Lucia you also saw the poem in which hetalked about the artists peace of ourvisas out of peace and so nature allowsus to develop things that are beautifulwhether there are songs or poems orartwork additionally when we arestressed and we've had a hard day arelaxing day by the beach truly makes usWatch at: 54:00 / 54:20come back alive and so nature can allowus to recreate additionally nature canmake some people feel spiritual orreconnected to God as they experiencethe beautiful things around them and sothe fundamental reason sister Tobia whywe protect the environment is because ofWatch at: 54:20 / 54:40the services that we receive from theenvironment and to not protect theenvironment would be to harm ourselvesthank youwe see that the environment is verybeneficial to us as human beings but youtouched a point briefly in the questionyou just answered but is there aWatch at: 54:40 / 55:00biblical basis for which we should careand consume our environment wonderfulvery profound question I think anyChristian should understand why natureor the environment is important to himor her and I would like to share a fewscriptural passages so that our audienceWatch at: 55:00 / 55:20can understand that this is notsomething we're taking out of the airbut there is a biblical foundation forenvironmental conservation and I'mhoping that they will show up on thescreen our first one is Genesis chapter1 this one Genesis chapter 1 verse 1reads in the beginning God created theWatch at: 55:20 / 55:40heavens and the earthso sisterto be a God is the Creator theBible doesn't seek to explain God hejust says he just declares God God isand so the first reason is that God isthe creator the second reason we find inWatch at: 55:40 / 56:00Psalm 24 verse 1 the earth is the Lord'sand everything in itworld and all who live in it in otherwords God is not only the creator he isalso the owner the third reason is thatit is God who give us this mandate andWatch at: 56:00 / 56:20we find this beautifully in Genesischapter 2 this is 8 and 15 Genesischapter 2 this is 8 and 15 it says nowthe Lord God had planted a garden in theeast in Eden and there he put the man heWatch at: 56:20 / 56:40had formed the Lord took the man and puthim in the Garden of Eden to work it andto take care of itso man's first responsibility wasactually to be a gardener he was anenvironmentalist and so if you look atthe King James Version the what tip isWatch at: 56:40 / 57:00used so man's responsibility was to keepthe garden but that would keep comesfrom the Hebrew would Abad it literallymeans to care for a garden as a priestwould care for the garden in the wouldcare for the sanctuary so Adam was thefirst priest and he God expects us toWatch at: 57:00 / 57:20care for our environment in a similarway that the priest was mandated to carefor the earthly sanctuary now I justwant to highlight a few more passagesthat will be F you'll permit me thatspeak directly to sustainabledevelopment pollution sanitation Tech'sWatch at: 57:20 / 57:40I am sure that persons never imaginedwere there now the first one isDeuteronomy chapter 22 verses 6 & 7Deuteronomy chapter 22 verses 6 & 7 andit says if you come across a bird's nestWatch at: 57:40 / 58:00besides at the road either in a tree oron the ground and the mother is sittingon the young or on the eggs do not takethe mother with the young you may takethe young but be sure to let the motherWatch at: 58:00 / 58:20goso that it may be well with you and youmay have long life in other words Godwas teaching the Israelites that you canuse the eggs or the young but let themuttered bird go so that should havetime to reproduce again and that's wayit would be well and so with your soulWatch at: 58:20 / 58:40so by conserving nature you're actuallyhelping yourself the third point I wantto talk about is the Bible says do notpollute this is not something thatthough the water and sewage company orgarbage company wants to tell us not topollute or the Ministry of EnvironmentWatch at: 58:40 / 59:00instead this is a Monday this is acommand we get from God we find this innumbers chapter 35 this is 33 and 34Numbers chapter 35 verses 33 and 34 andit says do not pollute the land whereWatch at: 59:00 / 59:20you are I'm sure many people did notknow that such a text exists do notdefile the land where you live and whereI dwell for either Lord it's well amongyou in other words Jesus is saying I amconcerned about your environment andoftentimes we a person's environmentWatch at: 59:20 / 59:40tells a lot about him or her theircharacter and if we serve a clean Godholy God Almighty God who is orderlythen our surroundings should reflect theGod we serve as well and finally sisterTobia this one would even make some ofyou laugh sanitation is promoted in theWatch at: 59:40 / 01:00:00Bible in Deuteronomy chapter 23 verses12 to 14 and I would I would really likeour audience to pay attention to thisone did Sarah know me chapter 23 verses12 and 14 it says designate a placeWatch at: 01:00:00 / 01:00:20outside the camp where you can go torelieve yourself in other words find aplace outside the camp where you can goand poop essentially right as part ofyour equipment howsomething to dig with and when yourelieve yourself dig a hole and cover upWatch at: 01:00:20 / 01:00:40your excrement for the Lord your Godmoves about in your camp to protect youand to deliver your enemies to you yourcamp must be holy so that he will notsee among you anything indecent or turnaway from youWatch at: 01:00:40 / 01:01:00interesting sister Tobias Oh God isconcerned about sustainable developmentGod is concerned about pollution God isconcerned about sanitation and it'sbecause he has made those things and asthe master designer he can tell us howto use them for our benefitWow so even the Bible supports andWatch at: 01:01:00 / 01:01:20emphasizes that we should take care ofour natural environment but sisterThomas are there any ways in which wecould practice taking care of ourenvironment wonderful yes so now we knowwhy that's a wonderful follow-upquestion so we should know howessentially it is not as ahead as aspeople would like to make it somethingWatch at: 01:01:20 / 01:01:40simple like not littering could be anexcellent way to keep our environmentclean so your honor you're drivingyou're on a bus carry a little bag withyou in which you can put your yourbottle and when you get home you disposeof it accordinglyalso we know of the three hours hoursWatch at: 01:01:40 / 01:02:00reduce reuse recycle and that's a simpleit's very simple to remember you reducethe quantity of stuff you use you keepreusing them instead of throwing themaway and what we don't want to throwaway we can try to recycle you saw inthe children's corner how the toiletWatch at: 01:02:00 / 01:02:20paper rows were used for crafts and sothere are things we can actually do wethink that we would have thrown awayit's always beautiful also sister Tobyhad to plant a tree so we liked that theshade of the tree we like the fruits ofthe tree it's easy to just plant one andsee it grow and leave it there so thatpeople later how long after we go on howWatch at: 01:02:20 / 01:02:40we are going can enjoy these benefitsand of course just try to use lessharmful chemicals try to use a lotorganic stuff plant our own food growwhat we eat use what we have rather thanbuy things off the shelf and these aresome simple ways that we can truly takecare of our environment and and in thelong run well not so long run take careWatch at: 01:02:40 / 01:03:00of our bodies and our cells we see thatit is very easy to take care of ourenvironment so we should all be takencare of and our environment now we're alittle bit

saw so moving rightalong we want to a sister Thomas whatWatch at: 01:08:00 / 01:08:20life lessons can we draw from naturewonderful the Bible talks about so manythings in nature and so we can use theBible to to get special revelation butwe can use nature to get generalrevelation and so in some 19 verse 1 theWatch at: 01:08:20 / 01:08:40Bible tells us the heavens declare theglory of God and the firmament showethhis handiwork in other words we look atthe stars we can learn about God we lookat the oceans its vastness its creaturesits biodiversity we can learn about GodWatch at: 01:08:40 / 01:09:00we look at the trees we look at the antsthe birds the lilies everything can tellus everything in nature can tell us ofthe wonderful creator a divine designerand it can tell us of all the wonderfulthings he has made we can also learnlife skills in naturefor example in proverbs chapter 6 verseWatch at: 01:09:00 / 01:09:206 we are told go to the ant thousluggard consider her ways and be wiseso two other lazy persons you knowsitting on the block expectinggovernment to give them a handout lookat the little ants how she she workshard carrying three four five ten timesWatch at: 01:09:20 / 01:09:40her weight to build her nest and feedfeed her young she's industrious and ifthe tiny creatures can do that what morefor us who have intelligence and and ourminds and with the strong bodies andfinally the Bible the nature saw itteaches us to just trust God more inWatch at: 01:09:40 / 01:10:00everything Matthew chapter 6 verses 26to 20 tells us the lilies of the valleythey are clothed beautifully Solomon inall his glory was not clothed sowonderfully the birds of the air thesparrows the heavenly father ourheavenly Father knows that they arethere and if one falls to the groundWatch at: 01:10:00 / 01:10:20he's away and so if he takes careof things that sometimes seem soinsignificant what more for us that hecreated in his image what more for usthat he died for and so nature can tellus that God truly is our Creator he isWatch at: 01:10:20 / 01:10:40our Redeemer as the Bible tells us andthat he loves us hence the reason why hemade all those beautiful things for ourenjoyment we've laid a foundation we'vebuilt the house and now he's ready ifwe're ready for the final touches showso is there any advice that you wouldlike to give our viewers based on thetopic that we discussed this afternoonWatch at: 01:10:40 / 01:11:00yes thank you sister Tobias so like yousaid we started off by defining theenvironment we looked at the differenttypes we looked at and why we needed todo so how we can do so what we can learnfrom it and finally as we close whatwhat really what advice can I givefriends of mine God created nature theWatch at: 01:11:00 / 01:11:20environment for our benefit he createdit for our well-being and to not takecare of nature is to not take care ofourselves there's a phrase which sayswhat we do to nature is done what isdone to nature is done to us all and soWatch at: 01:11:20 / 01:11:40if we really care about ourselves if wecare about others then we will truly bestewards God has given this to us forour care and it is our responsibility tohonor a holy God in taking care of theenvironment and in so doing we take careof ourselves amenI would like to thank you sister ThomasWatch at: 01:11:40 / 01:12:00for sharing your knowledge and
