“Let’s have more services outside!”
This is the feeling of so many parishioners of all ages who enjoyed outdoor worship – many for the first time – during Season of Creation 2022, which was actively encouraged by the Johannesburg Anglican Eco-spiritual Initiative (JAEI).
Many of the 75 parishes in the Anglican Diocese of Johannesburg followed either the Season of Creation 7 or the Burning Bush, from 1 September and concluding with St Francis Day on 2 October.
Exciting additional elements include potted arrangements in church, rosemary sprigs given out, tree planting, food gardens, new JoJo water tanks, youth pledges, paintings, handprint murals, clean ups, prayer walks, confirmation hikes.
