Poison Warning

Joel Kontinen

Adelaide is a rather beautiful South Australian city but its waterways show us that we are no longer living in the perfect world of Genesis.

Algae have coloured the Torrens Rivers green and warning signs indicate that it is not safe to take a dip into the water. Herons, black swans and ducks are unable to read the signs, however.

The warning signs also remind us that sin has polluted our world in many ways. Often the hidden pollution is much more serious than the visible one.

The tragic events of Genesis four are seen in our time.
