Season of Creation 2017

Canon Casson wrote: From the early days of the Season of Creation at SsAM, “The primary aim of the events of the season has been to enable adults and youth to celebrate and experience the inextricable link which binds together the destinies of all of God’s creatures. The Season of Creation celebrates and embraces the Bible’s vision of the earth in which all of God’s creatures – human and other forms – live out our destinies in a peaceful and harmonious environment, sharing equitably the rich and sustaining resources of the planet. We also acknowledge the unfortunate reality – that in all aspects of creation, this vision is blurred or hidden by human division, arrogance, war, greed and the abuse of our natural environment. It is further aggravated by the decisions and actions of the current administration in Washington.”

This year, our overall theme is Environmental Justice. There will be special readings, prayers, reflections and dismissals as well as a focus on environmental justice in our adult formation at 9:15 a.m. on Sundays.

SsAM is also hosting a national conference on Environmental Justice on October 20 – 22.

Canon Casson is our preacher for the First Sunday of the Season of Creation, IN THE BEGINNING.
