Hard to believe September is upon us. Soon I will be plagued once more on my commute by high schoolers heading to class instead of people heading to the PNE! Parents will breathe a sigh of relief as they no longer have to worry about occupying their young ones or finding sitters. Teachers will begin facing the inevitable knowledge loss that follows the summer holidays. So what are we doing as Anglicans as September approaches?

We’re observing a season of creation!

Christians around the world are invited to give particular attention to praying and caring for God’s creation as part of the global Season of Creation, observed from September 1 to October 4 every year. General Synod 2019 passed a resolution adopting the Season of Creation in the Anglican Church of Canada as a time of prayer, education, and action and encouraging dioceses and parishes to participate.

There are many ways your community can participate in the Season of Creation. Hold an ecumenical or interfaith prayer service; worship outdoors; go for a hike with members of your parish; work to reduce your plastic or energy consumption; or advocate for stronger environmental policy.

How are you going to participate in the global Season of creation? What could we do as a community?

See you soon,

Mother Lucy
