Season of Creation 3 has five themes: Climate change, Eco-justice, Water, Creation and Redemption, and Biodiversity. The materials can be used at any time of the year, but the suggestion is that they are used during September with the service on Biodiversity being celebrated on St Francis day, 4th of October.
The is the second resource pack made by ACSA for the Season of Creation. It touches on the topics of climate change, food, water, energy and biodiversity.
This is the first Season of Creation pack produced by Green Anglicans / ACSA. It covers the topics of biodiversity, land, water, climate change, sustainability and stewardship.
These materials were prepared by the Anglican Church of Southern African Environmental Network for the Season of Creation 2016 (1 September – 4 October), and translated into several Southern African languages.
In this sketch, children play the roles of grass, grasshoppers, spiders, mice, and an owl. It can be used along with some of the Children’s Biodiversity Activities also found in this pack.
The beauty, complexity and often sheer oddity of wild nature have a powerful appeal – as the viewing figures for wildlife programmes show. However, why does it matter? Can we go deeper than the liquid eyes of a baby seal, the waddle and beak of a puffin, or the porcelain beauty of an orchid?
The main question Psalm 104 makes us ask is: who is this all for? Everything – trees, birds, mountains, humans, lions and sea monsters, is completely dependent on God, and draws its value from relationship with God.
This interactive service ideally begins outdoors.
