Season of Creation:
Wisdom in Creation

The Season of Creation, invites us to celebrate God the creator and reflect on our relationship with the whole creation. For four Sundays in September, we celebrate God the creator and the wonders of creation. The focus this year, “Wisdom in Creation”, celebrates God’s wisdom within all parts of creation: designing their mysteries and guiding their purposes. More information is available online.
