"Our earth is like a child who has grown up without parents, having no one to guide and direct her. ...Some have tried to help her, but most have simply tried to use her. Humans, who have been given the task to lovingly steer the world, instead plunder her, with no consideration other than their immediate needs. And they give little thought to their own children, who will inherit their lack of love. So they use her and abuse her with little consideration, and then when she shudders or blows her breath, they are offended and raise their fists at God" (The Shack, Wm. Paul Young).
