These are the Bible studies for A Rocha UK’s 2008 resource pack, Planetwise. They include leader’s notes, handouts, quizzes, response grids and even a personal carbon calculator.
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.
Food is God’s gift in creation, but today it’s often either cheap junk, grabbed on-the-run, or an ethical nightmare and a cause of injustice and suffering. This pack aims to help you reclaim a biblical understanding of food – as something at the centre of our lives, a source of celebration and joy and a way of bringing God’s Kingdom values of justice and restored relationships into our lives.
A Rocha’s 2012 Environment Resource Pack is freely available to churches worldwide. It can be used on Environment Sunday (the nearest Sunday to the UN’s World Environment Day, June 5th), during Time for Creation (1st September – 5th October, promoted by the World Council of Churches), or on any suitable date.
