Getting an enlarged perspective on our planet, Earth

Earth Day 1991 found me at Boston's Museum of Science, in the Omni Theater, getting an astronaut's view of our planet. I felt amazement and wonder at the beauty, grandeur, and rich tapestry of the earth's surface seen from this vantage point. Most of all, the program highlights the essential role that all Earth's inhabitants have to play as conservers of its useful and good resources.

A series of related articles appeared recently in The Christian Science Monitor, entitled "Global Frontiers." In one of these articles on environmental frontiers, Brad Knickerbocker gives a perceptive analysis of today's challenges. He writes, "... as the world moves into the 21st century, the definition of a healthy environment is becoming much more complicated." He points out that not only economic policy is involved but individual valued.

Certainly there has never been greater concern for the environment than there is today. People all over the world are taking seriously the warning that further profligacy of Earth's resources is not somebody else's problem but is everybody's concern and moral responsibility. Some are even beginning to grasp more fully the profound meaning of God, good, as the only creative power and sustainer of His spiritual creation.
