Some of these Creation Season materials are focused on specific liturgical times and others are focused on tailored activities.

Discussion of Creation Texts

We have begun a discussion of Creation Texts in Scripture.This study was written in response to a several discussions at and between MEESC meetings concerning foundations of creation found in Scripture. There is a need to do more than just write ad hoc pieces for lectionary texts. We do better to look at the big picture, at least have in mind an outline of major creation texts, and keep before us the major issues in biblical interpretation. You are invited to join the discussion with reflections, thoughts, and other concerns that this article may raise in your spiritual and ecological journeys.


We welcome you to share in these reflections.
