Tiempo de la Creación | 創造の季節は

September 1 - October 4, 2020

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. This year, amid crises that have shaken our world, we’re awakened to the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and each other. During the season this year, we enter a time of restoration and hope, a jubilee for our Earth, that requires radically new ways of living with creation. The Season of Creation unites the world’s 2.2 billion Christians around one shared purpose. With so much injustice all around us, now is the time for Christians everywhere to come together and show the world how to love each other and creation.

1 de septembre al 4 de octubre de 2020

El Tiempo de la Creación es un tiempo para renovar nuestra relación con el Creador y con toda la creación por medio de la celebración, la conversión y el compromiso. Durante el Tiempo de la Creación, nos unimos a nuestros hermanas y hermanos de la familia ecuménica en oración y acción por nuestra casa común. Este año, en medio de las crisis que han sacudido nuestro mundo, nos hemos despertado en la urgente necesidad de sanar nuestras relaciones con la creación y entre nosotros. Este año, entraremos en un tiempo de restauración y esperanza, un jubileo para nuestra Tierra, que requiere formas verdaderamente nuevas de vivir con la creación. El Tiempo de la Creación une a los 2.200 millones de cristianos de todo mundo en torno a un propósito común. Con tanta injusticia a nuestro alrededor, este es el momento de que los cristianos nos unamos y mostremos al mundo cómo amarnos los unos a los otros y a la creación.


創造の季節は、お祝い、変換、コミットメントを通じて、創造主とすべての創造との関係を新たにする時です。創造の季節には,わたしたちは姉妹や兄弟と一緒に,共通の家庭のために祈りと行動を起こします。 今年は、私たちの世界を揺るがす危機の中で、私たちは創造とお互いの関係を癒す緊急の必要性に目覚めています。今年のシーズン中、私たちは、創造と共に根本的に新しい生き方を必要とする地球のジュビリーである回復と希望の時代に入ります。 創造の季節は、1つの共通の目的の周りに世界の22億人のキリスト教徒を結び付けています。私たちの周りに非常に多くの不正で、今はどこでもキリスト教徒が一緒に来て、お互いを愛し、創造する方法を世界に示す時です。
