Throughout the year the Church is invited to recall in a special way each of God's great deeds in Jesus Christ. Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Good Friday, Easter, Ascension, Pentecost - one reminder follows another, year by year. But no special time is reserved for recalling that God is the Creator of heaven and earth, the source of life. No special time is set aside for giving thanks for the gift of God's creation. We urge the Churches to designate the period from 1 September to the second Sunday in October as a Time for God's Creation.
The booklet offers reflections on the proposal for a Creation Time, stories of how churches internationally and nationally have responded to the proposal, and prayers and songs to help your church take up this call. You can download the booklet in English, French or German.
