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.
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.
One of the great penitential psalms in a newly written (2014), metric format (with September 2020 amendments)
Whilst this is not overtly linked to Creationtide themes, the plea in the (new) last verse for helping us build ‘a just and righteous place’ is especially topical as we think about a post-Covid society that is more aware of the needs of those downtrodden through the rampant capitalism that has prevailed in the past. Thus it is a prayer for the whole earth and all its peoples.
**Please note, I have changed the wording here from that in the stave below to make it a little less awkward. I have also changed the last verse to reflect the situation the world faces in 2020.
