Dedicated to the Preservation and Restoration of the Whole of Creation: Humans - Animals - Environment
"And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day" (Genesis 1:31)
(Elderberry, American, Black, or Common (Sambucus canadensis L.) - 01) We have listed the three common names for this bush which can grow to heights of 10-12 feet: American elderberry, black elderberry, and common elderberry, depending on the reference sources we looked at. There also seems to be some disagreement in the scientific naming: some refer to it as Sambucus canadensis L., a native American species, while others classify it as a subspecies of the European elderberry, Sambucus nigra, Sambucus nigra spp. canadensis L. No matter what it's called, to us it is another one of God's beautiful creations for us to enjoy.

Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation. Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion. It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
