  • September 1 – October 4, 2023

    Prophet Amos cries out: “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5:24) and so we are called to join the river of justice and peace, to take up climate and ecological justice, and to speak out with and for communities most impacted by climate injustice and the loss of biodiversity. As the people of God, we must work together on behalf of all Creation, as part of that mighty river of peace and justice.

    The theme for Season of Creation 2023 is Let Justice and Peace Flow. To download the Celebration Guide and find more resources and other information, please click here.
