Season of Creation

Every year, Christians around the world, from across denominations, commit the month of September as a season to celebrate God’s beautiful Earth, and renew our shared commitment to preserving and restoring that beauty. For the liturgical amongst us, this is called the Season of Creation.

Earth Overshoot Day

Earth Overshoot Day is the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what the Earth can regenerate in that year. Australia’s Overshoot Day in 2021 is March 22nd, the date on which Earth Overshoot Day would fall if all of humanity consumed like Australia's population does. If everyone lived like Australia we would need 4.5 planets.

Earth Hour

In 2020 we marked Earth Hour by unplugging for a bit, sitting under the stars, and taking a moment to reflect and disconnect in the time of COVID-19.
