Season of Creation 2
Here are some Extra Resources for the Season of Creation, week 2.
I am very keen to hear what extra resources you have found to be helpful during this season of reflecting on our relationship with all of creation.
"Welcome to Country" by William Barton and James Morrison
This short video gives some background history to the
Season of Creation, which started in 1989 and has gained momentum each year since 2003. We are called to pray, act, commit and celebrate under the theme of "A Home for All Renewing the Oikos of God".
Moving on from our Pew Sheet page 1:
"Martin Luther on How
Not to Tempt God
During a Plague"
Click on the star.
In the article above you will also find Martin Luther's open letter to Revd Dr Johann Hess, "Whether One May Flee from a Deadly Plague".
Brilliant piece of writing.
Long. But worth it!
"Martin Luther on
How Not to Tempt God During a Plague"
My Worship at Home space. What have you found helpful during our recent lockdown?
"Everything You Need to Know about Planet Earth" is a background animation about our home planet.
"The Heavens are Telling the Glory of God" from "The Creation" by Haydn.
Thank you Anne Weekley for this.
"Alone, Together" is a beautiful piece of music. Suggested by Alan Oldroyd. Just let this wash over you and cleanse you. Divine.
Some more music from the vault. Way back in 1995, Tracy Chapman had a brilliant album called New Beginnings. Here is the first of two tracks which fit the Season of Creation very well: "Heaven's Here on Earth".
I have kept this prayer from Common Grace, which we used in our worship services in Church during August.
Keep praying, at all times and in all places for our Common Home and for a Healing of Country here in Australia.
A final prayer of gratitude reminding us of :
the cry of the earth,
and our shared care of creation.
Some final wise words from Meister Eckhart. Concise.
Says it all really. Perfect as we continue in the "Season of Creation".
