Season of Creation: a stretch of weeks in Autumn in which we turn our attention to the gift and wonder of creation in light of our growing awareness that we with the creation are in crisis; a season that invites us to mine the resources of our faith to respond to the call to care for creation.
As a people made in God’s image, one of the things we can affirm is that we ourselves are creative beings.
So what if we appreciated that creativity is not the purview of experts? What if we really got it that to create means to relate?
“The root meaning of the word art is to fit together and we all do this every day. Not all of us are painters but we are all artists.
Each time we fit things together we are creating–whether it is to make a loaf of bread, a child, a day. …
And as artists, we accept responsibility to create–to realize our immense powers to change things, to fit things together in a new way.”
Hearing the call
to live creatively
inspired by and in response to
the splendour and the cry of creation
This is what we’ll be about this season.
Along with our experience together on Sunday mornings, the Worship Team is offering a guide to a weekly spiritual practice.
May the abundant blessings of the Spirit be ours this season.
