Season of Creation Three: 2014

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. This is the Season of Spring and the 1–7th of September is Arbor week in South Africa.

This pack is dedicated to the memory of Wangari Maathai (1940–2011, pictured) who once said, ‘It is the little things citizens do that will make a difference. My little thing is planting a tree.’ The Green Belt movement Wangari founded has planted over 51 million trees in Kenya.
