Celia Deane-Drummond will be participating in the Global Ecumenical Online Prayer Service for the opening of the Season of Creation on 1 September 2022. Faith leaders from around the globe will be leading this time of prayer and reflection to celebrate the start of the Season of Creation, on this year’s theme, “Listen to the Voice of Creation”.

The Season of Creation Committee, of which Celia is a member, described this year’s theme as follows:

“The burning bush is the Symbol for the Season of Creation 2022. Today, the prevalence of unnatural fires are a sign of the devastating effects that climate change has on the most vulnerable of our planet. Creation cries out as forests crackle, animals flee, and people are forced to migrate due to the fires of injustice.”

“On the contrary, the fire that called to Moses as he tended the flock on Mt. Horeb did not consume or destroy the bush. This flame of the Spirit revealed God’s presence. This holy fire affirmed that God heard the cries of all who suffered, and promised to be with us as we followed in faith to our deliverance from injustice."

"In this Season of Creation, this symbol of God’s Spirit calls us to listen to the voice of creation.”
