In 2019 General Synod passed a resolution adopting the Season of Creation in the Anglican Church of Canada as a time of prayer, education, and action and encouraging dioceses and parishes to participate.
The Season of Creation is an international ecumenical endeavour. The 2021 Season of Creation theme is “A Home for All?: Renewing the Oikos of God.” “Oikos” is the Greek word for “home” or “household.” This theme is in alignment with a global call to recognize that “the Earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it.” This means every creature belongs to the earth community and the entire community belongs to the Creator and we are called as custodians to care for our common home in an integral ecological sustainable manner.
We at St. Mark’s will honor and acknowledge this season. Each week we will commit to prayer and examen during our 10:30 worship and we will include information regarding the Season of Creation in our Newsletter. Before the end of the Season we will engage in a sustainability project that helps all of creation thrive. More information to come in the weeks following.
