Worship

GREEN CONGREGATION PROGRAM:

WORSHIP

Our care of creation is an act of worship. And our worship is an act of caring for creation. The challenge is to be intentional in making the connections between our caring and our worship, and to find liturgical ways to express that relationship in a way that does not detract from the work of praising God. Worship can be a time to increase our awareness of the world around us, to increase our appreciation of the sacredness of creation, and to deepen our desire to treat it with dignity and respect.


1. Theological Reflection: why worship is essential

2. Action Plan: ideas on how to do this

3. Resources: liturgies, litanies, prayers, sermons, and more!

4. Checklist: keep track of your creation-care commitments
