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)
(Wild Rose, Small Pink Rambling (Rosa multiflora) - 06) In our ministry to help make this a more sensitive, loving and compassionate world, we also encounter the most horribly cruel and inhumane treatment of animals that anyone could imagine. The torture, pain, suffering and death that occurs every day in the animal agriculture industry, particularly on factory farms and in slaughterhouses, can drive a sensitive person into a deep depression, if it were not for these times when we can stop and "smell the roses", and come to realize that our efforts are not in vain, and that we must continue our peaceful endeavors. These are the thankful and quiet times when we can rest in the Lord, and then go forth refreshed. It's very much like going forth with the assurance that the buds will open to reveal more roses, but unlike the roses which wither, the Lord and His encouragement is always present.

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.
