Plans for Season of Creation 2017 are in the works! We aim to build on the momentum from last year by continuing to encourage offline prayer services, engaging in advocacy initiatives, along with some new initiatives.
PROPOSED ACTIVITIES FOR 2017:
- Prayer Services: Individuals and faith communities are encouraged to organize prayer services, ideally ecumenical in nature. Services can include a symbolic action to highlight ecological struggles in the local or global community and advocate on it too.
- Online Prayer Services: Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, and Anglican leaders will come together online to lead a service of prayer and reflection. Tentative dates: Sept 1 and Oct 4.
- Advocacy Initiatives: Churches and faith communities are invited to participate in a joint Christian Divestment announcement on October 4. (See recent Catholic announcement). There will also be a petition aimed at the World Bank for individuals and groups to sign onto.
