The Season of Creation, an annual ecumenical celebration that encourages congregations to listen and respond to the cry of Creation begins September 1 (World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation) and runs through October 4.
This year’s theme is “Let Justice and Peace Flow” and invites us to join others in working for climate justice. A range of actions are suggested, from prayers to meeting with national climate negotiators to influence their decisions. The Season of Creation Celebration is intentionally scheduled just prior to the annual UN climate convention (the COP) to encourage climate action and advocacy.
The Season of Creation formally begins September 1 with a global ecumenical online prayer celebration at 9:00am Eastern on the Season of Creation YouTube channel.
