The God who creates and restores - ecology and human relations within Colossians
We are living in a world which has become very aware of the dangers of the pollution of our common environment and the destruction of the delicate balance of our ecology. Although the letter to the Colossians was written almost 2000 years ago it is surprising how much can be gathered by means of guidelines and principles with regard to these matters. Although Paul and the Colossians were not aware of the specific ecological problems that we face, there are nevertheless certain impulses in this letter which could guide us to a more balanced outlook with regard to these matters.
