For God So Loved the World

 The Art
Both male and female birds are referred to as Black-caps, which is confusing, since the females have red caps. There you go. It was probably a man who named them. Nevertheless, they are lovely. The church on top of a hill is very British. They do say they built their churches on top of previous pagan sites. It kind of makes sense that they would do that. But there are more churches not on hills, and at one time the entire land was Pagan.

The Scripture
The leaving of the land fallow one year in seven was a command to the ancient Israelites. To give the land rest, a Sabbath for the land. They didn't do it of course and paid a heavy price, one year in exile for every year missed. Despite what some might think, God cares about His creation and is not impressed when we don't take care of it.
