Nature as Our Mother? (Stunning photography)


True, the visuals are stunning. But as G.K. Chesterton once wrote, “The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister.

This gives to the typically Christian pleasure in this earth a strange touch of lightness that is almost frivolity.” (Orthodoxy ). Nature, too, is fallen (as C.S. Lewis adds) and Scripture teaches that nature itself groans for the New Heavens and the New Earth (Romans 8). (Click on the following for a great article on “Mother Nature” by Gary L. Welton):
