What do you love most about God’s creation? When the weather first turns cool, and leaves begin to float to the ground, I get intoxicated by the scent of wood fires. There is something in the cool breezes and woodsmoke that excites me, that gives me a sense of expectation, of great things to come. I feel that way now!
Whatever you love most – about the earth, the animals, the skies, the seas, and ourselves as God’s human creatures – celebrate that with us this month at St. Dunstan’s.
You’ll notice new sights and sounds in the church during this season – images by many artists of God’s creation, hanging along the side walls of the church; a changing display as you enter the worship space; and hymns and anthems focused on the blessings of God’s creation. Thanks to our Liturgy Group for planning and implementing these enhancements to our worship.
Our sermon series continues on the theme of “Practicing Love” – this Sunday, exploring our faithfulness to God as creatures, and our call to nurture other creatures and the earth itself. As Jesus said, if we have the faith of a mustard seed, we can move mountains! As the earth heats up and climate changes, the call to be good stewards of our environment - and all its residents – has never been more urgent. JBM
