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.
I Imagine The God Who Created The Cosmos
I imagine the God who created the cosmos
as a Spirit, eternally young; full of light, full of love, full of energy from whose Word every particle spun, to be shaped and reshaped through existence with some to emerge into life at first simple, then complex, then sentient bringing love and its dark converse, strife. This same God, out of deepest compassion, set power and glory aside, became human, risked wrath and malevolence
to redeem us from sin’s drowning tide.
