the Bible and recycling

a United Methodist 'rethink church' ad

Instead of putting together a new post for this week, I thought I would point everyone to an op-ed piece I wrote for our local newspaper, the Natchez Democrat, about a few biblical reasons why Christians should care about the planet and, by extension, about recycling. A lot of Bible-believing Christians have probably never heard this before, and since we're kicking off a new, city-wide, curbside recycling program here in Natchez in the next couple of weeks, I'm trying to spread the word and maybe get those Christians excited about this chance to care for creation.

Check it out on the Democrat website:  "Christians should embrace recycling."

What have you heard the Bible saying about the planet and how we should treat it? What have you heard churches teaching on this question? 
Does the idea that Christians should care for the environment surprise you? Why or why not?
