Season of Creation – Meditation Series (Part 1)

Sep 14, 2023 7:30 pm - 8:15 pm

Thursday, September 14th Season of Creation Meditation Series

“Let justice and peace flow…”

“We need to move from a spirituality of alienation from the natural world to a spirituality of intimacy with the natural world.” Thomas Berry

Suggested donation:  €5.00 (to support the work of the Centre)

In person and online event..

We invite you to join us for the first Mediation during the Season of Creation.

The theme for the 2023 Season of Creation is inspired by the words from the Prophet Amos: “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” Amos 5: 24. The invitation is to join the river of justice and peace. St. Brigid, a woman of justice and peace, is renowned for her closeness to nature and her affinity with animals. We can draw inspiration from her and our Celtic ancestors and hold in reverence and respect all creation.

There is an urgency for all of us to make visible peace with Earth and on Earth, while at the same time, justice calls us to repentance and a change of attitude and actions.

How can we contribute to the flow of the mighty river of justice and peace in this Season of Creation?  What can we do to heal our common home so that it can once again teem with life?

First, let us join the mighty river by transforming our hearts.  This is essential for any other transformation to occur.

Transforming our hearts could lead to transforming our lifestyles, and the public policies ruling our societies.

Our individual actions during the Season of Creation are important.

“You cannot go through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” Jane Goodall
