Season of Creation (October 4, 2016 – November 20, 2016)
The Diocese of Western Massachusetts has joined a growing number of dioceses and Provinces in the Anglican Communion that set aside a special period every year in which to honor and serve “this fragile Earth, our island home.” We observe a season in the hope that one day, all seasons will focus on the moral imperative of climate change and protecting the web of life. Through preaching, prayer, and practice, we will strengthen our Christian response to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor. In every season – not just Creation Season – we invite you and your congregation to participate in what Archbishop Desmond Tutu calls Jesus Christ’s “supreme work” to reconcile us not only with God and with one another, but also with the whole of God’s creation.
