Let All Creation Praise (“LACP”) has been a resource for so many for years and it will continue to be so. We are in the process of moving all of the resources to a new host, thanks to Lutherans Restoring Creation. At this time, the new LACP is hardly even a “rough draft.” However, we wanted to make public the site in all of it’s currently-broken glory. We are working our way through the site to fix broken parts (3/2024). Again, thank you for your patience!

Weekly Creation-Justice Commentary on the Revised Common Lectionary

Preparing for the Season of Creation
Now is a great time to begin your planning for celebrating the Season of Creation, with the Spirit series that includes Forest, Land, Wilderness, and River Sundays as well as the Blessing of the Animals on St. Francis Sunday. You can also find other resources for a different version of the Season of Creation from Green Churches Network of Canada.

Why Do This?
Bridget Jones shares an essay on “Liturgy to Reconcile People and the Planet” and looks at our worship practices, reminding us that greening the congregation absolutely doesn’t stop at the doors of the sanctuary, but can fill our whole worship practice.

A Song of Inspiration
If you’re looking for some of the feeling of this website and what we mean by praising the triune God with creation, the song “Holy Now” by Minnesota singer-songwriter Peter Mayer may give you a feeling for it.
