Salem UCC - Happenings:

 

September - “Hoping and Dreaming with Creation”

 

During the month of September we will focus on Creation. As children of creation, we are called to love and care for all its many elements. This month will be a time to focus on the beauty and intricacy of God’s creation and be sure we don’t take it for granted. We will be exploring God’s divine wisdom in creation which put in place a world that is interconnected, joined together in a web of complex parts. God holds all these things together – and expects us to help. We need to hope, dream, and work with, not against creation, to protect and conserve our planet.
