creation in crisis
group study resources 2009
Care of God's creation is fundamental to the Christian faith. There are many different ways of focusing on creation and the promotion of sustainable lifestyles based on Christian hope. These resources will help Church study/discussion groups to take a Creation theme for the month of September (although they could be used at other times of the year).
Our 2008 Hope for Creation resources also included a group study based on the Lord's Prayer.
