The season starts 1 September, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and ends 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology beloved by many Christian denominations.
In this Covid year it seems apt that the theme suggested is, “Jubilee for the Earth: New Rhythms, New Hope.”
I know from discussion with lots of folk from LEQ schools that our young people have a range of opportunities to engage with growing a love for God’s creation. I encourage you to continue you to support and nurture loving action to care for this world.
Seasonofcreation.org has a range of resources including suggestions for liturgy, a Lutheran reflection on the theology of creation, and practical suggestions such as this 50 ways to care for creation.
Don’t forget too about the Earthcare Charter! And this stewardship resource.
In Psalm 50:10 & 11, God says ‘every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine’.
May God help us to also see the whole of creation as precious and worth taking care of.
