Seasonal Planning
The seasons of Advent and Christmas are particularly rich in opportunities to celebrate God's promise entering, interacting with, and fulfilling creation. For ideas in what to include and how to observe these days--from lectionary tidbits to the presence of evergreens and more--check out our seasonal planning page.



NEW 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.
