Churches and Christians are encouraged to celebrate the Time for Creation together between 1 September – 4 October 2017, and 1 September as the Day for Creation, by the Conference of European Churches (CEC), Council of European Bishops’ Conferences (CCEE) and the European Christian Environmental Network (ECEN).
‘Recent developments remind of the growing urgency of the continuing climate change, loss of biodiversity, growing piles of waste and many other challenges. Even if we know there are several causes, we cannot forget that part of the problem is due to our selfishness, lack of care and wide spread misunderstanding of the world as a source of profit’, the organisations said in a joint statement.
‘We will celebrate Time for Creation together, within your own liturgical traditions and to uphold the common Christian faith in God the Creator. We urge you, in your respective settings, to offer prayers for the gift of Creation’, said the general secretaries of CEC, CCEE and ECEN.
