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.
‘As leading evangelicals engaged in addressing the issues of poverty, creation care and climate change, we welcome the Paris Agreement signed on Saturday 12 December 2015. For the first time in history, the world has a global climate change deal where almost every nation on earth has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and has agreed to pursue efforts to keep global average temperature rise below 1.5 degrees C.’
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.
