This is the page where we have uploaded a series of daily reflections written by Revd Richard Clarkson for the Season of Creationtide (which runs for five weeks from early September to early October each year). These reflections offer opportunities for reflection and response each day. They are not written with the purpose of convincing the reader that the world was indeed created by the God of the Bible. Instead, it will look in a variety of ways at what it might mean to live within that created world, to help the reader to reflect on their place and role in the world that God has made, and to let that inform their faith. The daily reflections will draw on a range of writers, thinkers, poets and storytellers from across the Christian tradition.
Rev’d Rich Clarkson is Rector of five rural parishes in North Shropshire. He has degrees in Physics and Theology and wrote his Master’s dissertation on Nature Contemplation in the writing of Maximus the Confessor. He is a Diocesan Environmental Officer for Lichfield Diocese, on the Board of Directors for The John Ray Initiative, and most importantly he is dad to three wild boys!
