Sep. 1 is observed as World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. In the Genesis story, Adam and Eve (and thus their descendents) were made stewards of creation. A good steward takes care of something, in this case creation, as if he/she owns it knowing that they really don’t own it. They are keeping it for the rightful owner. We need to give thanks to God for His handiwork of creation and do what we can, as stewards, to protect it.
