A home for All? Renewing the Oikos of God

Season of Creation 2021 Celebration Guide

This year we will be uniting around the theme, “A home for All? Renewing the Oikos of God.” Oikos is the Greek word for “home,” or “household.” By rooting our theme in the concept of oikos, we celebrate the integral web of relationships that sustain the well-being of the Earth. We hope that this Season of Creation renews our baptismal call to care and sustain this ecological turning so that life may flourish, and all creatures may find their place to flourish in our common home.

The Celebration Guide contains liturgical resources, prayers and meditations, and calls to action and advocacy, and can be used by individuals or congregations, to nurture faithful imagination to restore right, just and sustainable relationships with the Earth and among all species. 

Find an ecumenical prayer service, ecologically themed Bible readings, links to eco-theological commentaries and songs, and more in the 2021 Celebration Guide, A Home for All?
