The Rainbow Covenant.


"God said, "This is the sign of the covenant that I will make between me and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.'"  Genesis 9:12,13 (NRSV)

God vows never again to destroy all flesh.

And the sign of this is the rainbow.

The rainbow is a sign of peace between God and all living creatures.

The rainbow is also a symbol of the gay community and political coalitions that protect the environment.

So the rainbow is indeed a sign of peace between God and the earth.
