New Creation Ritual
September 1, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+13
RITUAL NEW CREATION
The Season of Creation is the annual Christian celebration of prayer and action for our common home. Together, the ecumenical family around the world unites to pray and protect God’s creation.
This year the theme is “A Home for all? Renewing the Oikos of God”. Oikos is the Greek word for “home”, or “household”. By rooting the theme in the concept of oikos, we celebrate the integral web of relationship that sustains the well-being of the Earth.
This ritual is part of the series introducing Aurora Living Spiritual Formation, which follows the arc of Scripture. Thus, being the last ritual just before the beginning of the program, it focuses on the Book of Revelation.
The Book of Revelation, or the Apocalypse, is a book of the new creation, opening up a horizon of hope. God makes everything new.
LS nº 100: “The creatures of this world no longer appear to us under merely natural guise because the risen One is mysteriously holding them to himself and directing them towards fullness as their end.”
Everyone is invited to participate in the prayer ritual on September 1, at 7:00 pm (mountain time Canada), World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.
