2022 Season of Creation
September 14 - October 4

It is our hope to learn to see the ground under our feet as God’s gift, our responsibility, and a place to begin to heal the rifts between humans and the rest of creation.

Just as renewal begins where you already are, care for creation begins in the place we already love.

God's Grandeur 

 

The world is charged with the grandeur of God.

    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;

    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil

Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?

Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;

    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;

    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil

Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

 

And for all this, nature is never spent;

    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;

And though the last lights off the black West went

    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —

Because the Holy Ghost over the bent

    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

 

                                    ~ Gerard Manley Hopkins
