This September, we’re inviting you to journeying with us as we celebrate God’s beautiful Earth with weekly reflections from our new climate justice team.

It's the places we love that ground our conviction that God's beautiful Earth is worth protecting.

That’s why this September, we’re inviting you to journey with us as we celebrate God’s beautiful Earth with weekly reflections from our new climate justice team.

What is the Season of Creation?

Every year, Christians around the world, from across traditions, 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.

Each Sunday during September one of our new climate justice team will be celebrating a different aspect of creation – from oceans to rivers, land to sky – exploring the beauty of the world around us, while recognising the harm we are causing and presenting ways for us to take action to renew, restore and preserve that beauty.

If you’re new to considering our Christian responsibility to care for God’s beautiful Earth, this will be a great series to dip your toe in. And if you’re an old hand with this topic, this is a great chance to renew your commitment to caring for God’s beautiful Earth.

This Sunday, our Aboriginal Spokesperson Brooke Prentis will be launching the series with a profound reflection on all of creation, as we celebrate and learn from the traditional custodians of this land we now call Australia. As God’s appointed caretakers since time immemorial, Aboriginal peoples’ wisdom and connection this land have so much to teach us about caring for God’s beautiful Earth.

We’ve just reformed our climate justice team, and as we prepare ourselves to campaign for God’s beautiful creation in the midst of growing environmental crises, we felt it was important to first take this season as a moment to ground ourselves in the beauty of God’s creation, and prepare ourselves for action.

So, sign up the the journey as we celebrate God's beautiful Earth!
