Reviving Creation, by Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Jones, PhD.
Episcopal Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, is an author, retreat leader, and Episcopal priest. In a pioneering ecumenical partnership, she serves as Missioner for Creation Care for both the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts and Mass. A long-time climate activist, she believes that the ecological crisis – from climate change to the extinction of species – calls us to claim our kinship with all creation, to look deeply into our sources of hope, and to work together to build a just and sustainable future. The website is a base camp, giving people a place to rest and reflect, to learn and find encouragement.
“God’s Good Earth – Praise and Prayer for Creation”, by Anne & Jeffrey Rowthorn.

Each section can be used in full, or the user may select smaller sections; permission is granted to the purchaser to reproduce for use in public prayer. Find it on Booktopia.com.au.
