Season of Creation is almost upon us again. The period from 1 September through 4 October is observed by Christians and churches all over the world as a time to celebrate and work toward healing God’s creation.
This year’s theme is “A home for all? Renewing the Oikos of God”. Oikos, Greek for “Household”, is the root of both Ecology and Economy – two concepts often but unnecessarily at war with each other.
Here’s what the Season of Creation people have to say:
Amid crises that have shaken our world, the global Christian family was awakened to the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and with each other during the ecumenical Season of Creation.
During the 2021 Season of Creation, from 1 September through 4 October, thousands of Christians on six continents united for a time of restoration and hope, a jubilee for our Earth, and discovered radically new ways of living with creation.
More than ever before, the global Christian family united to pray and take action for our common home.
We urge each of you to encourage and support your own church leaders in setting this time aside for God and his creation.
