Creationtide 1: Earth Sunday – Sept 6

The Wisdom of Marlee Matlin
“The Earth does not belong to us; we belong to the earth.”

Genesis 1.31
“God saw everything that had been created, and indeed, it was all very good.”

Psalm 33.6-9
“By Divine Will the heavens were made, and all their host by the breath of Life. God gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle and put the deeps in storehouses. Let all the earth be in awe of the Source of life; let all the inhabitants of the world revere the One Power. For God desired, and it came to be; God affirmed, and it stood firm.”

Creationtide 2: Humanity Sunday – Sept 13

The Wisdom of Michael J Fox
“One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.”

Philippians 2.3, 5, 8-9
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility be mindful of others… Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who… humbled himself at great personal cost, even losing his life. Therefore God highly exalted him…

Psalm 8.4-5
“What are human beings that you are mindful of them, O God; mortals that you care for them? Yet you have made us divine and crowned us with glory and honor.”

Creationtide 3: Sky Sunday – Sept 20

The Wisdom of e.e. cummings
“I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.”

The Wisdom of Linda Rondstat
“When the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby, it helps to think we’re sleeping underneath the same big sky.”

Psalm 19.1-6

The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims God’s handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.

Yet there is no actual speech, nor are there words; their voice is not audible; still, their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In the heavens God has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a couple getting married from their wedding canopy, and like an athlete it runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them; and nothing is hid from its heat.

Creationtide 4: Water Sunday – Sept 27

Isaiah 33.15-16
“Those who live righteously and speak with integrity, who despise the gain of oppression, who wave away bribe instead of accepting it, who do not ponder bloodshed and cruelty, they will live on the heights, their refuge will be the fortress of rocks, their food will be supplied, and their water will be assured.”

Amos 5.24
“Let justice roll on like a river and righteousness like a never-failing stream.”

Mark 9.41
Jesus said, “Whoever shares with you a cup of water for my sake will by no means lose their reward.”
