Resources for Preaching in the Season of Creation

Preaching Care for Creation

All Year and in the Season of Creation

There are four sites that provide care for creation reflections for preaching on all the lessons of the three-year lectionary cycle as well as the Season of Creation. Here they are:

1. Lutherans Restoring Creation offers exegesis and theological reflections on the weekly lectionary lessons by Dennis Ormseth, Lutheran Pastor and theologian. Go to the clergy subsection at www.lutheransrestoringcreation.org.

2. The Christian Ecology Link is a multi-denominational organization from the United Kingdom for people concerned about the environment. They have provided Ecological Notes on the Common Worship Lectionary by Keith Innes. www.christian-ecology.org.uk/econotes-index.htm

4. The Environmental Stewardship Commission of the Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota (MEESC), has collected environmental and earth-centered reflections, sermons, and commentaries on the lectionary readings. www.env-steward.com/lectnry.htm

4. Text Week. For resources for care-for-creation preaching throughout the year and especially during the Season of Creation, visit www.textweek.com.

Sermons on Caring for Creation: There are sermon collections on many sites, including the Web of Creation, www.webofcreation.org. See also the collection of sermons by many preachers, biblical scholars, and theologians of different denominations in Earth and Word: Classic Sermons on Saving the Planet edited by David Rhoads (Continuum, 2007).
