Calling all children and teens! Tell the world about the gift of the earth that we have received from the Creator. As a precious gift from God we want to take good care of it. This year’s theme is: A Home for all. Renewing the Oikos of God.
Oikos is a Greek word meaning home. Create a poster that reminds people that the earth is a home created by God. It is home to everyone and everything and what we do affects everyone and everything. When we treat the world poorly the whole world suffers and when we treat it well, the whole world rejoices!
Design a poster that:
– Encourages people to love the earth
– Show ways we can take care of the earth
– Reminds people how beautiful the earth is
– Suggest ways we can protect the earth
