A Rocha – The Earth In Our Hands

Happy 30 years anniversary, A Rocha!

A Rocha is an international Christian organization which, inspired by God’s love, engages in scientific research, environmental education and community-based conservation projects. – See more at: http://www.arocha.org/int-en/who.html#sthash.ywtEWhK9.dpuf

We invite you to take two minutes to watch our new video, ‘The Earth in our hands’. For 30 years, A Rocha supporters have been caring for the Earth, and so, in March, we asked you to send us photos, or a short video clip, of the ways in which you express your love for the creation. We want to say a big ‘thank you’ to all those who helped us make this creative, heart-warming celebration.

The beautiful song featured in the video is “From Smallest Seed” by L. Chaffer, S. Masen, & K. Meeks. It was written at the A Rocha USA Songwriters Retreat, Nashville 2013. (http://www.arocha.org/int-en/news/top…)

From smallest seed
Abundant field
From broken earth
A way revealed
Despite the weeds
The drought, the storm

The sun returns
The earth reborn

With empty hands
With nothing great
We enter in
And then we wait
Despite the fear
The heart forlorn

The sun returns
The earth reborn

From heavy earth
From push and shove
From every effort
Made to love
From empty tomb
To curtain torn

The sun returns
The earth reborn
