Cover title: "And God saw that it was good..." : a Brazilian liturgy of creation
'{By] Ernesto Cardoso [and] Marcos Gianelli".
"The liturgies suggested in this book began in a wonderful experience of collective creation. The whole idea began in Brasil, when an ecumanical worship committee met to plan the ideas, themes, colours, rhythms and gestures -- everything needed for a series of worship series based on the seven days of creation. These liturgies provided the central theme and focus for each day during the international consultation 'God, People and Nature : One Community' held in Sao Paulo, Brasil in June 1988. The consultation was sponsored by the Church and Society sub-unit of the World Council of Churches, Geneva". -- Preface.

Notes
"In the wake of the climate change agreement reached in Paris December 12 [2015], Anglican and ecumenical leaders in Canada say they're looking to the future with new hope -- as well as concern that the deal will be translated into action. While in action to meet Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, travelled by train to Paris to take part in a special climate change-themed ecumenical service. The occasion gave him a change to talk with people involved in the Paris conference, he said, and hope was a big theme of these discussions" (p. 1). "In Paris on behalf of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) was Joy Kennedy, chair of the CCC's commission on justice and peace" (p. 7). "In each country, the onus may be on people and organizations to keep up the pressure to make sure their leaders stay on track, Thompson [Henriette Thompson, director, public witness for social and ecological justice, Anglican Church of Canada] said. It may also require some personal sacrifices, and one important role for the church in the time to come, she said, will be to allay people's anxiety, 'especially as members of our own church in Canada will be suffering directly the economic impact in the form of the loss of jobs' that is likely to follow in this country's energy sector" (p. 7).

Notes
"The following is excerpted from the keynote address last spring by U.S. Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt to the annual convention of the Associated Church Press, of which the Anglican Journal is a member. Mr. Babbitt's speech, entitled 'Leading America closer to the promise of God's covenant' was about the role that spirituality and church members can play in maintaining, or all too frequently, restoring the integrity of the environment -- God's creation. Though set in a U.S. context, the address, especially its conclusion, which is reprinted here below [not included in electronic database], contained enough practical advice by a seasoned civil servant to be of interest to Canadian church members".
"Finally, we can remember that conservation did not begin as a partisan, or even a political issue. Nor did it begin on Earth Day. It began in the time between the flood and the rainbow, a time that begins with the break of each new day. You can help by asking your leaders, your congregations, and yourselves to transcend the narrow partisan differences, which can only drive us back towards destruction, and instead uphold our moral obligation as stewards of God's creation, which can only bring us closer to the hope and renewal that was and is the promise of His covenant".

"[By] Ross Kinsler and Gloria Kinsler".
Includes bibliographical references (pp. 164-166) and index.
"This book is the ideal resource for churches to nurture commitment and creativity by promoting `Jubilee literacy', a spirituality of forgiveness and reparation, and practical economic disciplines for individuals, households, and congregations. However, the Kinslers are clear that with this hope for renewal also comes a warning: Any theology that refuses to reckon with the realities of the increasingly unequal distribution of wealth and power in the human family today is both cruel and irrelevant. We Christians must talk about economics, and talk about it in light of the gospel". -- Foreword, p. xi.

Notes
"Those who prophesize peak oil warn that the crisis about to overtake the planet is not only climate change due to the burning of fossil fuels, but the end of our easy access to those fossil fuels altogether." "As we approach this dramatic moment in history all side have become fixed in their positions. Government sees jobs and money ... For every critical report from environmentalists, there's a positive pronouncement from the industry-supported Oil Sands Developers Group. Among those trying to offer a broader (or at least a different) perspective are church leaders. This past spring [May 2009], representatives of Canada's Anglican, Lutheran, Catholic, Christian Reform, Quaker, Mennonite, Presbyterian and United churches embarked on a fact-finding expedition organized by the inter-church organization Kairos, which has a mandate to promote ecological justice. Kairos executive director Mary Corkery explained that she first wanted to take the Canadian church delegation to the oil fields of Nigeria, but then decided 'to start at home'. I joined them for an aerial survey of the oil sands and a visit to two affected communities: the First Nations reserves at Fort Chipewyan and the city of Fort McMurray".
