For celebrating Creationtide mindfully in an age of environmental emergency, a resource from the Iona Community’s Common Concern Network on the Environment.

Reflections, essays, hymns, songs and liturgical resources from more than twenty writers around the world, covering the twelve weeks from September, through the United Nations COP conference … and future years.

Creator God, we give thanks
that we have heard the Spirit of God
in the freshening leaves
and the rush of water.
So we pray for the creation
which nourishes and sustains all that lives.
Renew in us the sense of its value
that we may not squander its riches,
or so bend it to our will
that we find we have destroyed it.
