2020 Season of Creation - “Jubilee for the Earth”
Individual Actions to Care for Creation
Request for Plant-Based Recipes
[June 29, 2020 The Episcopal Church]
Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry and the leaders of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada have prepared a series of devotions to observe the Season of Creation 2020, September 1–October 4.
The season, which begins on September 1 with the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, is a time to join with the global Christian community in renewing, repairing and restoring commitments to God, to one another and to all of creation. For the four churches, it is also a time for strengthening relationships with one another. Through Scripture, hymns, advocacy and action, the weekly devotions, which are designed to be bulletin inserts for each of the five Sundays during the Season of Creation, begin Sunday, September 6, and invite people to live out their vocation as stewards of creation.
In the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast, we will also take a look at one of the most accessible actions that an individual can take to reduce their carbon footprint and care for our planet – eating fewer animal products.
We plan to develop a diocesan-wide e-cookbook showcasing delicious plant-based recipes to help people make the transition away from eating meat and dairy, and hope to have all parishes represented. Submit your recipe below for your favorite plant-based (including no animal products…meat, milk, eggs, or cheese) recipe(s). Please complete the form by July 31. We look forward to giving people a tool for making the transition to eating lower on the food chain, thus helping to protect this fragile Earth, our island home. We are looking forward to receiving great plant-based recipes from throughout the diocese!
