Festival of Homiletics
The theme for this year's festival was "Preaching a New Earth: Climate and Creation." The 2020 Festival of Homiletics theme invited preachers to imagine their own role in God’s creative work, to be courageous in preaching about God’s creative activity, and to claim boldly our role in caring for God’s creation, when God’s very creation is at stake" Find more and order downloads of all the sermons and presentations at their website: www.festivalofhomiletics.com.

Worship that Reorients us as Creation-Centered
Bridget Jones shares an essay on "Liturgy to Reconcile People and the Planet" and looks at our worship practices, reminding us that greening the congregation absolutely doesn't stop at the doors of the sanctuary, but can fill our whole worship practice.

Earthkeepers Preaching
The Minnesota Episcopal Earthkeepers Circle has been helping to work on a website similar to TextWeek.com but focused on creation-related resources for preaching! Visit earthkeeperspreaching.net/.  Similar to this website, they would also be happy to receive and share your sermons.


A Song of Inspiration
If you're looking for some of the feeling of this website and what we mean by praising the triune God with creation, the song "Holy Now" by Minnesota singer-songwriter Peter Mayer may give you a feeling for it.
