Worshipping nature

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: We see God in all creation. Can this turn into worshipping nature on the same level as God?  eg. blessing the planting  of  a new tree?


A: The Book of Blessings includes a blessing of fields and flocks, through which “the faithful express their grateful recognition of the blessings of God, who created the universe out of his inexpressible love and entrusted its care to human labor as the way of providing for common human needs” (966).

Creation is the fruit of God’s work, not a deity itself.
