Celebrate the Season of Creation with this daily devotional:
Stewardship of Creation: A Thirty Day Discipline. Download and copy this daily devotional booklet. Each day has a scripture verse, theological reflection, fact about the environment, action we can take to address it, and a prayer. Make this available to each member of your congregation as a discipline during the month-long Season of Creation.
