CHERISHING AND CARING FOR “ENDANGERED SPECIES”

To draw public attention and encourage respect for endangered species, ASVF volunteers shared about 31 significant scientific information with the public, hoping to remind them that mankind does not own but has been entrusted to care for things on earth.

“THE UNIQUE ONE”

So far 22 articles have been published to encourage volunteers to enjoy the nature in spite of their busyness. From the perspective of “The Unique One”, people can admire and cherish how awesome creation is. This can lead them to be pioneers in illustrating the 3R1U* concept! Below is one of the latest excerpts from “The Unique One” “Voice of the Lotus” taken from the Northern Song Dynasty’s Zhou Dunyi’s masterpiece “Lotus Love”.

*3R1U = Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, & Upcycle

“The muddy environment could not stain the Lotus; the ripples could not demean it … This is in line with our core value.

“Those who cleanse themselves from dishonorable matters will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work. (2 Tim. 2:21)“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good… Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone… (Rom. 12:9-18).

Due to the severity of the pandemic, volunteers had to stop their in-person services and there was concern that the group dynamics might be lost over time. So other than irregular online sharing to promote “Creation Care”, we, with wisdom from above, took every opportunity to perform other environmental promotion activities such as clearing up rubbish and conducting workshops. Thank God, by His grace, ASVF can continue to be His salt and light!
