Season of Creation 2018

The Season of Creation at SsAM  in 2018

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.”

In 2018, we begin on Sunday, October 14th with Jeanne Nutter narrating James Weldon Johnson’s “The Creation” at both the 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services. 

At the 10:30 a.m. service, Jeanne will be joined by performers from the Hanover Dance Collective: Marion Hamermesh, Marlene Jones, Lynnette Overby, and Monique Relacion, with creative assistance from Sherry Goodill.
