Well, this is the first time I have been so aware of Creationtide and I have found it a very interesting few weeks. Often, the focus of our environmental thinking is on our failings as a species to care for our environment, and of course we must keep thinking and acting to counteract the damage done. I was aware as I thought of how difficult it is for the Church to involve itself with anything like this without being accused of being “political”. Maybe sometimes we have to be political!
But for me the most thought-provoking moment came when I read a passage from “H is for Hawk” by Helen Macdonald, a passage which I found on the C of E’s Creationtide website (https://creationtide.com/2017/06/12/week-4-day-e-h-is-for-hawk/). The Earth, her plants and her creatures bring us joy and comfort in so many ways. I’m looking forward to next year!
