Give Us A Sign 2018: Season of Creation
The Give Us A Sign campaign emerged out of conversations within the Anglican, Catholic and Uniting Churches in the Hunter and Central Coast as a powerful initiative to highlight Social Justice issues across the wider community. Previous campaigns have promoted peace, called for greater compassion for asylum seekers and our need to stand together with the First Peoples of Australia.
In 1989, a day of prayer for creation was proclaimed for 1 September, World Day of Care for Creation, that begins the Season of Creation which runs up to 4 October, the Feast of St Francis of Assisi. During this time Christians across the globe are invited to celebrate prayer services for creation and engage in different actions to care for creation. Caring for our planet demands of us a unified and shared purpose. Our planet is suffering and collectively we need to stand and raise awareness and to make a difference.
The theme of Season of Creation 2018 is pilgrimage.
To raise awareness of this important issue and the work that still needs to be achieved, the Give Us a Sign campaign is calling on Churches and Christian organisations to stand together for Creation.
From 1 September to 4 October simply post a message, at least one day EACH week, on your church or school noticeboards to show that you Stand Together for Creation.
