So Many Highlights! (updated)

Many blogs out there are now turning to a “weekly wrap up” list that includes the articles, pictures, inspirations, and ideas that get the writer writing.  Today I am offering a group of links that our readers and Creation Care-ees have sent to me in the last few days.  I hope you will explore a link or two.

Earth Sabbath Celebrations include songs, inspirational readings, scripture of world religions, silent and spoken prayer, guided meditations, sharing of our joys and concerns for our work, and a ritual sending forth to do the Creation care we are called to do as people of faith. 

The Earth Sabbath is:

  • a time to step out of our daily hectic lives and into a joyful celebration of the mystery and meaning of the universe
  • a time of sharing gratitude and appreciation for the gifts of creation
  • a time of lament, hope, and honoring our interdependency
  • a time of reverence and humility for the power of nature beyond our control
  • a time for community with people caring for creation
  • a time for nurturing and supporting the vision and creativity needed for the healing of the Earth and all those traveling upon her.

  1. I am confused about the Earth Sabbath at St. Mary’s. Feb 7 is not a Monday but a Tuesday and the link to the NCCC website says their Earth Sabbath is the fourth Monday of the month. Could the correct date be Feb 27?

    • I just saw this comment, I apologize for the late response…. I looked there too and they have the 27th. I had to do a round about check to find the prior info and no wonder it was confusing! I will update it today, Thank you Jane!!!
