The global reach of COVID-19 revealed our shared human nature and inter-connectivity of our economies, political structures, healthcare systems, food chain production, energy and transportation systems. Thus, it is apt that this year’s theme for the Season of Creation is “Jubilee for the Earth”, as we consider how a respite for the Earth is intertwined with ecological, economic, social and political ways of living.
Observed from September 1 to October 4, the Season of Creation is an annual celebration of prayer and action embraced by the wider ecumenical community to protect and care for our common home. This jointly-produced Celebration Guide provides resources for Christians worldwide to pray, reflect, and respond with bold action as stewards of God’s creation and includes liturgy for an eco-themed prayer service. The guide also includes ideas for advocacy to encourage sustainable living on an individual and institutional level, and organising sustainability events in communities, be it cleaning local waterways, or tree planting.
