Highland Perthshire congregations marked the start of the Season of Creation outdoors, in the Serenity Garden. See the pictures and read more about it here:









On Climate Sunday Evening Prayer for Creation in the Serenity Garden  “I can lose my hands and still live. I can lose my legs and still live.

All Of these thing are a part of me, more essential to my every breath, than is my so called body.”
