Seasonal Planning
Death and resurrection, the season of Easter, the new creation -- these are rich weeks for fully celebrating God's promise and life-giving. Besides Earth Day (April 22) falling on the 4th Sunday of Easter, there are myriad deep and joyful ways to observe our relationship with creation in God's redemption and ongoing work for fruitfulness in these weeks.  Visit our seasonal planning page for ideas to connect.

Call for Sermons
The United Church of Christ Eco-Justice ministry has a website devoted to the call for more than a thousand sermons in solidarity with 21 youth who have taken the U.S. federal government to court over climate change. Clergy and youth are encouraged to make a pledge to preach a sermon in the coming months. Find out more and pledge to join at www.eachgeneration.org/

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.
