3rd September 2023 (Year A – Pentecost 14) “Taking up the Cross”

Jesus wasn’t into an easy and attractive message. Not something an advertising agency would want to address.

He calls us to take up the cross, to share the burden of the world.

Carrying the cross is a way of life. It is about putting God first.


For the month of September, we generally include the Season of Creation, now celebrated worldwide and the brainchild of Normal Habel, a Lutheran minister based in South Australia. The Season of Creation is a time to renew our relationship with our Creator and all creation through celebration, conversion, and commitment together.

During the Season of Creation, we join our sisters and brothers in the ecumenical family in prayer and action for our common home in the All Age message. Norman Habel saw creation as deserving a season of its own to complement Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, Advent and Pentecost.  For more information, and ideas beyond simply liturgy and worship, see www.seasonofcreation.com and www.normanhabel.com.

Please note that Season of Creation is worldwide and we are all different – you may choose to adapt the material according to the insights and challenges pertinent to your local context.


Forest Sunday: Deep in the forest there are many interrelated plants, trees and animals.

The secret of the forest is something they and we all need.

Without this provision that God has made, we could not all live.
