Season of Creation

Universe Season of Creation

The Season of Creation is a spiritual journey into all aspects of creation – humans, other living creatures, and the natural environment. It is celebrated at SsAM at the 10:30 a.m. worship service on the last seven Sundays of Pentecost. It features guest speakers, storytellers and artists, contemporary liturgy, readings, dance, music and other art forms. Our purpose is to celebrate the wonders of God’s creation, and to commit ourselves to become peacemaking stewards in our own lives, in our local communities, and in the world.

Since 1998, SsAM has participated in the development of the Season of Creation as the newest season in the liturgical calendar. We invite you to join us for our journey into the wonders of God’s Creation. Take the journey!!!

Canon Casson wrote the following about 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.”
