Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams on God's Covenant with the Created World

October 13, 2009

The one thing we should not imagine is that God's covenant means that we have a blank cheque where the created world is concerned. The text [Gen.9. 8-17] points up that God's promise has immediate and specific implications about how we behave towards all living beings, human and non-human. It is not a recipe for complacency or passivity.
