Held on the Sunday following Earth Day, Good Seed Sunday is a time for Christians across Canada to honour the Creator as they celebrate and care for creation.
We invite you to make use of our FREE downloadable resources. From sermons to Sunday school curriculum to ideas on practical creation care projects, A Rocha’s Good Seed Sunday resources can help kick start a creation care movement in your church and neighbourhood. Watch the video here.
Our A Rocha Talks are online lectures or panels that delve deeper into the practice of creation care on-the-ground. Sit down for a viewing and group discussion over one of these videos and be enriched on topics you can take action on.
Whether for Vacation Bible School, book club, or grounds & maintenance ministry… we’ve got you covered! We have compiled resources over the years that have helped us to be better disciples and stewards of God’s creation.
Looking for longer-term engagement with your congregation? Church leaders and movers can draw from our Good Seed Sunday sermons, resources, and advocate guides to build a foundation to last generations.
I believe in my heart that faith in Jesus Christ can and will lead us beyond an exclusive concern for the well-being of other human beings to the broader concern for the well-being of birds in our backyards, the fish in our rivers, and every living creature on the face of the earth.
God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.
To drive to extinction something [God] has created is wrong. He has a purpose for everything… We Christians have a responsibility to take the lead in caring for the earth.
The Earth is the Lord’s and everything in it.
God may well prefer the sound of spring peepers, but I have to believe there was joy in heaven when the first human being looked at the sky and said, ‘Thank you for all this.
Barbara Brown Taylor
If we learn to love the earth, we will find labyrinths, gardens, fountains, and precious jewels! A whole new world will open itself to us. We will discover what it means to be truly alive.
