Creation Season 2009 October 4 October 25, 2009 (Proper 22 through Proper 25, Year B)

Humans interacting with 'this fragile Earth, our island home'

We thank you for the chance to consider the materials we have compiled and created. May they help you in your worship and in your spiritual journey in this world.

Each of our topics looks at a different aspect of our relationship with "this fragile Earth, our Island home." We have prepared some materials for you to use in worship and in religious education.

The outline below and the individual links will point you to materials for preparing various parts of services for a Creation Season in 2009 for Proper 22 through 25 (Year B, Revised Common Lectionary). All Links go to the specific item except for the link for the Sunday, which will take you to a page for that Sunday. The focus of these materials is on the Old Testament (Hebrew Scripture) and Gospel readings.

Some of the materials are still being finalized and some links may not be complete. Please come back in late August for more resources.

Sunday Theme
Creation Theme
Proper 22 For Jesus, the value of relationship is made more equal through the treatment of women and children We see the world in all its glory
Proper 23 Obtaining the kingdom of God is difficult while holding on to the valuables of the world We touch the world in hard and masterful ways, ripping from it the goods we need
Proper 24 Disciples are to work in concert with one another, not separating into hierarchies and classes We feel isolated and the world's bounty seems far from us
Proper 25 Humans are healed to see again (like Bartimaeus and Job) that it is God who is the ground of our being. We hear the pain we have caused the world, and seek to reconcile our mutual life rhythms

If you will be following the Semi-Continuous Track readings [focusing on the Old Testament (Hebrew Scripture) readings], please read first this reflection on Job.

As a reminder, if you do reproduce information for use in your parishes, please follow the notation requirements on use of our materials.
