Season of Creation 2021: A home for all? Renewing the Oikos of God

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 and protect God’s creation.

The season starts 1 September (this week!), the World Day of Prayer for the Care of
Creation, and ends 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology beloved by many Christian denominations.

Season of Creation was started by our friends in the Orthodox churches a number of years ago, then picked up by Pope Francis and a number of protestant churches and denominations. We don’t see why they should have all the fun. This is a great opportunity for evangelical congregations around the world to remind our own people of the beauty – and fragility – of God’s creation, as well as to reach out to our brothers and sisters in other faith traditions in support of what is truly “our common home”.
