Humans Interacting/Reconciling with
'this fragile Earth, our island home'

Welcome! We're glad you're planning on observing a Liturgical Season of Creation during the Season of Pentecost 2012. The focus for this series is on Humans Interacting/Reconciling with "this fragile Earth, our island home". Each of our topics looks at a different aspect of our relationship with our environment. 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 this Sunday. If you wish to see full list of materials for the Creation Season during the Season of Pentecost 2012 (Propers 22 through 25), click here.

RCL Readings for this Sunday:

Semi-Continuous Track Gospel Theme Track
Old Testament (Hebrew Scripture) Reading: Job 42: 1-6, 10-17 Jeremiah 31: 7-9
Psalm Psalm 34: 1-8 (19-22) Psalm 126
New Testament Lesson
Hebrews 7: 23-28
Mark 10: 46-52
Creation Theme for this Sunday: Salvation comes when as humans we live most fully when we live sustainably in concert with the earth and are satisfied with its riches. Hearing the pain we have caused the world, we seek to reconcile our mutual life rhythms.

Together we seek to bring harmony and new ways of living in sustainable interdependence with Creation
