Worship and Eco-Justice

What resources may help with discovering the biblical texts, reformed theological tradition, liturgical and musical resources for worship that includes care for all God's earth? How can worship be a part of our active earth-keeping activities, which we hope to integrate in all of our lives, as individuals and in our churches?

In the Presbyterian Church (USA) hymnals (including the new hymnal Glory to God), Book of Common Worship, Directory for Worship, and other worship planning tools, there are many great resources that name ways that all Creation praises God's name, and how we can give thanks to God for the wonder and beauty of the world around us. Explore these traditional, good tools and find out what rich resources exist already in our church.

Sample Orders of Worship 

 These sample orders of worship were developed collegially for a particular space and time for a particular community. Some are from a newly forming worshipping community, some are from a conference, some are from more traditional churches. We have been given permission to use them as a creative sounding-board for others to gather ideas and to feel inspired to work with their pastors, musicians, worship committees, earth care team, or others to create something fitting for the community using it. Please respect the communities who have shared these sample bulletins with us and refrain from judgment and from replicating them without permission. Many thanks to those who have shared! If you have some you would like to share, please let us know.
