Written by the chief editor of the Earth Bible Project, Seven Songs of Creation: Liturgies for Celebrating and Healing Earth is a resource intended to help worshipping communities develop liturgies to revere, honor, love, and serve Earth. Seven Songs of Creation is not meant to make the Earth the theme of worship, but rather to forge a way of worshiping God and Jesus Christ that takes into account the wonder and miracle of all living things. Song of Sanctuary, Earth, Sky, Waters, Sophia, Life, and Healing are presented in full musical notation, along with hymns, alternative prayers, litanies, blessings, confessions, reflections, and special text for celebrating the Eucharist. Especially meant to fuse reverence for God's natural creations with Christian service, Seven Songs of Creation is a superb resource for broadening spiritual depth and awakening the awareness of one's congregation.
