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.
Othona: St Peter’s-on-the wall, Bradwell-on-Sea
Wind, sweep off the sea
to scour the implacable marsh.
Beat ancient and hollow tattoo
against wildstone walls, harsh
from your bitter and shrieking blast.
Here, stark at the shore,
protector of the weather-seared wild,
Cedd’s little church on the wall
from whence, the sea-borne child
of faith, on the wind, flew wide.
