He notes that while nature may be the handiwork of God, it doesn't do any of the following:
- Collect offering to help feed the hungry, clothe the poor or meet the needs of refugees
- Answer the question of how sinners can be reconciled to God and invested with a hope in Christ
- Provide forgiveness of sins
Without the help of others we tend to make God into our own private image. When in a worship setting we are joined by a mix of people who don't mirror every facet of our life. This eclectic mix of folks keeps us tuned into the greater diverse community in which we are called to live and share our talents.
While nature is the best place to view God's handiwork, we also benefit by coming together in worship and service.
