Let dry ground appear
And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good. Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1: 9-12, NASB
May you be blessed of the Lord,
Maker of heaven and earth.
The heavens are the heavens of the Lord,
But the earth He has given to the sons of men.
Psalm 115:15-16, NASB
On a dry and sunny Sunday, the Creation Care Kids class learned about the creation of the dry land. The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, the William Kamkwamba's memoir, illustrated for them how ingenuity can help overcome hardship.
Not only is Kamkwamba's life available as an illustrated book for children but as a book for young readers, a book for adults. as well as a movie on Netflix. Of course, the book is available in print, digital, and audio formats from your local library.
After hearing about Kamkwamba's overcoming adversity, the class went on a walk on St. Mary's grounds. They visited the fields that St. Mary's has partnered with the Aquidneck Land Trust to preserve.
