Sacred Earth, Sacred Work – 6 Week Sermon Series
Jan. 19, – Feb. 23, 2020
For the full description look under the WORSHIP heading.
When God began to create the heavens and the earth— the earth was without shape or form… and God’s wind swept over the waters… God saw everything God had made: it was supremely good.
What if we lived life truly connected to the origins of Creation and the Creator? In the beginning God created all things and called them originally “good.” In this series we will explore six essential ideas found in Creation Spirituality – a way of living within the community of earth that deepens our reverence for life, participates in the creativity of the cosmos, and develops our passion for justice and human transformation. It compels us to lead lives of spiritual inquiry, creativity, and prophetic action as our sacred work in the world.
