#WorldDayofPrayer for #CareofCreation

From Creation Justice Ministries:

Today, September 1, is the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.

This celebration started among the world Orthodox Christian community in 1989 with the leadership of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who is affectionately known as “the Green Patriarch.”…

This August, Pope Francis announced that the Roman Catholic Church will also recognize September 1 as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. …

The call to prayer didn’t stop with the Orthodox and Catholic communities…

The National Council of Churches issued a press release jointly with Creation Justice Ministries, in which

Creation Justice Ministries Executive Director Shantha Ready Alonso said, “Prayer is powerful. Uniting in prayer will give us the spiritual strength we need to face the most daunting challenge humanity has known: to heal and restore God’s web of creation before it is too late,”

and the World Council of Churches is beginning a 33-day season of prayer entitled, “Time for Creation”.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
