Season of Creation Resources 2021


 


…………………..

The Season of Creation is the annual Christian celebration of prayer and action for our common home. Together, the ecumenical family around the world unites to pray, protect, and advocate for God’s creation. It runs from 1 September through 4 October each year.

Global church leaders, including Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Dimitrios I and Pope Francis, proudly support the season and encourage the faithful to take part every year.

This year the theme is, “A Home for All? Renewing the Oikos of God.” Oikos is the Greek word for “home,” or “household.” By rooting our theme in the concept of oikos, we celebrate the integral web of relationships that sustain the well-being of the Earth.

Last year, more than 300 institutions throughout the world led their communities to pray and take action for God’s creation. You’re warmly invited to join them by becoming an official Season of Creation partner. Help your community take action: Become a Season of Creation partner.

This Season of Creation also represents a unique moment for prophetic action ahead of two vital United Nations summits: COP26 (UN Climate Change Summit) and COP15 (UN Biodiversity Summit).

Both will take place after the Season of Creation, and before they do, Christians must raise our collective voices and tell world leaders the kind of future we want.

Sign the “Health Planet, Healthy People” petition and join Christians everywhere in advocating for the least of these. Now is our time to lift the cries of the Earth and the cry of the poor.

Below are resources to prepare for the incredible Season of Creation that awaits us at this crucial moment in time:

Thank you again for your commitment to protecting our common home.

Blessings,
