Church leaders invite Christians to celebrate the Season of Creation
Mother Earth Network joins Christians across the globe in prayer and action for the environment
Against a backdrop of multiple crises, Christian leaders are focusing on caring for the environment as a way to heal divisions and build a more healthy community.
Mother Earth network and Franciscan Family Kenya Association will lead activities to care for the environment during the Season of Creation, a season of prayer and action for creation that is celebrated by Christians around the world.
This strong statement of support for environmental protection gives hope to many. Mother Earth Network know that environmental destruction ultimately harms people, and vulnerable people above all.
By healing the planet that provides for us, they hope to encourage a culture of prudence and responsibility. This activity will unite the people across Africa to care for each other and the home we share.
For decades, Christians across the globe have reconciled with our Creator during the annual Season of Creation. Church leaders from Pope Francis to the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew have invited the world’s Christians to participate in this transformative celebration. The season runs from 1 September through 4 October each year.
The theme of repairing the bonds with all of creation is especially pertinent this year, as the world continues to endure both the coronavirus pandemic and the worsening climate emergency.
