Season of Creation

Season of Creation

The Season of Creation is the annual Christian celebration of prayer and action for our common home. Together, the ecumenical family around the world unites to pray, protect, and advocate for God’s creation.

Over the past two years, we have gone through a world changing event – the COVID-19 pandemic – and through its countless ups and downs, many of us are now comfortable with this new norm of meeting virtually, working from home and even being asked to be muted.

However, what about those without the technological abilities or means? They have been totally excluded and cut off from having a voice. This year’s theme, Listen to the voice of creation challenges us to think about the marginalised people in our community. It is calling on us to identify, listen and amplify their voices.
