Worship Resources

Earth Sunday Order of Service (version one)

Earth Sunday Order of Service (version two)

Use this beautiful Order of Service (OOS) for your Earth Day Sunday worship service, or any appropriate worship service during the Spring for Change Season of Sacred Activism.

Just download the file, fill in the boxes at the bottom of the OOS cover with the information for your congregation’s service, and print. There are two versions, one entitled “Earth Sunday” and the second version with the title section blank for you to fill in.

The illustration on the cover by artist Anna Welch depicts two rabbits planting seeds and harvesting plants in a Spring garden. One rabbit has a sign reading “Create Climate Justice“. In the front right is a calla lily plant, a flower associated with faith and Easter, as well as with the Year of the Pig in the Chinese Zodiac. In the front left is a calendula flower, an edible and deeply medicinal plant that symbolizes healing and transformation.

In the sky is a dove with an olive sprig in its beak that was taken from the olive tree in the background.
