Sunday 3rd March was scheduled as Clean Up Australia Day, and the members of Oxley Vale Anglican pitched in to lend a hand, gathering bags of rubbish from around the premises of the school where we meet.
This is an important community event in communities around Australia, and, for the Christian community it is an opportunity to reflect locally God’s global love for his creation. As the Psalmist says in Psalm 24 –
The earth is the LORD’S, and all it contains,
The world, and those who dwell in it.
For He has founded it upon the seas
And established it upon the rivers.
