Creation Season Sunday September 13

Creation Season Sunday September 13

Many people, this month, are celebrating Creation Season. This site is committed to the three year lectionary (RC) and its derivative, the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL). Rather than departing from that lectionary, in previous years resources have been provided on this site for a “creation reading” of our shared biblical texts. This means that this… Continue Reading
