Did you celebrate the Season of Creation these weeks? If you participated, we'd love to hear your stories!
Special reminders and ideas for planning worship and including creation during these months of the season of autumn also include Thanksgiving, harvest festivals, and (Eco)Reformation.
For All Saints Sunday, notice how in the Northern Hemisphere we've set this festival at the end of the long (green, Time after Pentecost) growing season. Hymns like Come, Ye Thankful People, Come and even the liturgical piece Let the Vineyards Be Fruitful, Lord call us to envision ourselves as the crop God is tending, with the saints at rest in God's promise finally as the harvest brought into the barn. Our lives grow and bear fruit amid the mission "fields," then we rest in God's safe protection.

heart of our identity as earth-people and our sacramental theology.
