  • Every Creature Singing – Mennonite Church USA
    quoted Vincent Miller professor of Catholic theology at the University of Dayton in Ohio The basic idea is in order to love God you have to love your fellow human beings and you have to love and care for the rest of creation It gives Francis a very traditional basis to argue for the inclusion of environmental concern at the center of Christian faith Catholic bishops and diocese are distributing the encyclical organizing symposiums and study groups and planning sermons based on it A Catholic friend of mine in South Bend spent the entire day after the encyclical was released reading and studying the statement He is not alone But the Pope s words will reach far beyond the Catholic Church In post Christendom a watching world sees a smaller Christian church more as a whole rather than sorting out different strands streams and voices A recent report on the Pope s statement in a Sunday front page story of the New York Times for example quoted Mennonite Brian Sauder licensed for ministry in Illinois Mennonite Conference and Central District Conference as well as Presbyterians evangelicals and others When the Pope speaks and acts he is the face of the Christian church for many across the world This calls us as Mennonites to be attentive to the words of the Pope and to engage with Christian brothers and sisters from other traditions including Catholics When they offer a witness for compassion justice and the care of creation we can celebrate applaud and be challenged We are fortunate that in the last year the Mennonite Creation Care Network MCCN has developed an excellent adult curriculum for congregations small groups and individuals Every Creature Singing grounds care for God s creation in scripture and theological reflection provides tools for being more attentive to one s own surrounding neighborhood and offers concrete spiritual and household practices for deepening commitment to care for God s good creation The curriculum is the result of a resolution adopted by delegates at the Mennonite Church USA assembly in Phoenix in 2013 I commend it to you MCCN is eager to hear about your experiences with it and for your congregation to find ways to be part of the growing circle of Mennonite congregations seeking to live out their faith in their care for creation Share this Facebook Twitter Email Posted in Interchurch Relations Menno Snapshots Tagged Every Creature Singing Mennonite Creation Care Network Phoenix 2013 Pope Francis Post navigation WeAreMenno Just Like Captain America WeAreMenno Mennonites and Muslims Official comments policy for users of Mennonite Church USA s websites and other social networking tools We reserve the right to remove any comment that violates this policy The purpose of comments is to engage in constructive dialogue Please provide your own full name Be respectful If you re offering criticism focus on others ideas not their motives person character or faith Consider the log in your own eye before pressing Enter Comments are moderated Comments with any content
