Having produced worship material for Creation Time for the past six years, Eco-Congregation Scotland has now become an official partner of Season of Creation. This is the programme that promotes Creation Time and other initiatives. It is facilitated by the Global Catholic Climate Movement, Act Alliance, Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, World Council of Churches and Anglican Communion Environmental Network.
As part of this year’s Season of Creation, Christians are encouraged to organize prayer services that incorporate a symbolic action that highlight the “cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.” Join us in this powerful witness of Christian unity for our planet.
This is the campaign’s latest email:
This September, Pope Francis asks us to pray for creation.
We will be joining Pope Francis through our celebration of Season of Creation, which begins September 1 with the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation and lasts until through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis. During this time we will be lifting up the “cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.” (Laudato Si’ 49) From the Amazon to the Philippines and countless places in between, we will be hosting symbolic actions to showcase how Christians are coming together to pray for and care for creation.
We invite you to join us in the global celebration. Host an event. We have a new toolkit to walk you through the steps. Pray with creation. Review any of our helpful prayer resources. Spread the word. Contact your pastor this weekend to invite him to join you in this celebration.
As Pope Francis says in the video, “The relationship between poverty and the fragility of the planet requires another way of managing the economy and measuring progress, conceiving a new way of living.”
This September, may we have the eyes to see these relationships, the courage to point out the injustices and the ability to make a change.
