Throughout Creationtide, 1st September - 4th October, there will be a daily posting of material to help us reflect on the various themes associated with this period in the Church’s year.
Creation Window: Durham
The posts will follow a nine day cycle, as follows:-
- Glory of the Cosmos,
- Earth’s Wonders
- Care of the Planet
- Meditation/ Prayer
- Praise & Adoration
- Jesus, the heart of it all
I hope you will find these notes, prayers, hymns and meditations helpful and that you will feel you want to call in on the site each day. You will be very welcome and as many of the items reflect the biggest challenge of our times (notwithstanding Covid 19), I hope you might encourage other like-minded people to join us on this 34 day pilgrimage.
Lord of the dark night sky. Some young, still in their forming stage And some, about to die from age. Planets go round most stars, Size and their mineral mix Among this family, spread through space Earth seems a rare life-giving place. So let all earth rejoice, Hills, rivers, ocean’s waves You’ve heard the advent voice, You’ve seen Messiah’s ways. Your great Creator’s trod your soil,
A babe, a man, redeeming all.
