A Rocha’s 2009 Environment Resource Pack, examining the question ‘Whose world is it anyway?’
This PowerPoint illustrates Psalm 104, according to The Message, and can be displayed during a Bible reading.
This sermon is based on Leviticus 25:1–12, 18–24 (The Sabbath of the Land) & Luke 12:16–21 (The Parable of the Rich Landowner). It includes an optional PowerPoint presentation to illustrate the sermon.
This sermon is based on Genesis 1:26–31 and John 2:1–11, which focus on food as God’s gift in creation and the central role it plays in our relationship with God and each other. It explores four values to cultivate when we look about food biblically – celebration, abundance, dependence and community/relationship.

The following sermon, mainly based on Genesis 2:8–17, explores the topic of trees and how they are vital for the diversity of life that God calls us to serve and preserve. It reminds us of the tree of life and its focus on a God-centred wisdom, which is rooted in a healthy relationship with God and a healthy relationship with God’s creation – including trees.
This service order provides a menu of ideas, either to slot into an existing service pattern, or
to create a specially-themed service. It is designed to be used with the accompanying list of
songs and hymns, and with the sermon on ‘The life of trees’.
The following sermon is based on Jeremiah 29:4–11 and addresses our culture’s rootlessness, linked to the desire to continually look over the horizon for ‘the next move’, for ‘a better place’. It emphasizes the biblical call that most of us need to hear: to stay put and deepen our roots in the places God has put us.
