Reflections September 20


25th Sunday in Ordinary Time <– click for reflection for September 20 from the collect/opening prayer (NZPB)

Creation Season
Many communities celebrate a Season of Creation during September. Some communities do this by abandoning the three year lectionary that it has taken us so long to grow into agreement internationally and ecumenically.

This site encourages a greater consciousness of our responsibility towards creation. It is also firmly committed to the three year lectionary. I believe it is possible to keep the three year series AND to focus on creation. Doing so means communities, worship leaders, and preachers also grow in agility and awareness of creation threads and themes throughout our Christian tradition.

Most important, of course, is not just thinking about creation – but putting new disciplines into our lives – individually, communally, nationally, globally.

  1. Forty years ago the Anglican Church in Southern Africa adopted a two-year lectionary, with the 9th Sunday before Christmas as Creation Sunday. It usually fell around the same time as the Orthodox Church New Year (September 1/14). I’m not sure why they abandoned it for the 3-year cycle, but the themes of the 9 Sundays before Christmas seemed quite good.
