David Shreeve’s last Creation Time 2011 Blog

 

So, Creation Time 2011 draws to a close.  How was it for you?  Until the Christian Ecology Link diary of events arrived a few minutes ago I was beginning to think Creation Time might be one of our best kept secrets.  From my own experience in a variety of churches and church meetings over the past few weeks I have not heard Creation Time mentioned once.

David Shreeve's second Creation Time blog.

David Shreeve’s second Creation Time blog

In my first blog I reported on how Creation Time events around the world are linked this year on issues concerning food.

David Shreeve  Creation Time 2011 Blog No 1

Just as I was about to begin to write this first blog in a weekly series for CTBI’s website during Creation Time I heard the news that scientists have added together all the species in the world and come up with a total of 8.7million. I was not sure whether my reaction was ‘Amazing’ or ‘That sounds about right’.

Launching the Good Society Conversation

Listening to the periphery at the heart of WestminsterThere was something intensely symbolic and powerful about yesterday’s launch of the Good Society Conversation by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland and Church Action on Poverty:  Eighty people packed into the Cardinal Hume Centre’s children’s centre, a stone’s throw from Westminster’s power places – Parliament, Whitehall, Abbey and Cathedral - yet somehow a million miles away from the formalities of what now passes for conventional…See More
