September 1st opened the ‘Season of Creation’ which runs until October 4th. The global Christian Family is uniting around the theme “A home for all”. This year’s symbol is Abraham’s Tent which signifies the Christian commitment to safeguard a place for all who share our common home. This follows the story in Genesis of Abraham and Sarah sharing their Tent with strangers. Thus Abraham’s Tent is a symbol of our ecumenical call to practice ‘Creation care’ as an act of radical hospitality, safeguarding a place for all of God’s creation on this planet which we all share.
Sadly we were not able to sponsor our own team of ‘riders or striders’ for the Sussex Historic Churches Fund. However you could sponsor the Church House Team who we are told spent yesterday ‘striding’ along the ‘Cuckmere Pilgrim Path’ visiting 7 churches on their way. Any sponsorships should go direct to ‘Sussex Historic Churches Trust’.
