The Farewelling of a Home: a liturgy by Jane Simpson

This is a liturgy written to meet an expressed need for all who have suffered the loss of a home or who are leaving it for the last time.

In it the householders give thanks for their home, hallowed through their everyday lives down the years. In each room prayers and memories are gathered up in times of silence, thanksgiving and taking leave.

Responding to God’s call to journey in faith, the householders are sent out by the group. They say their final goodbyes and proclaim hope for the future. All leave in silence.

The Farewelling of a Home can also mark other life-changing transitions such as moving into a retirement village or into care.

Prophetic Indigenous Voices (Aotearoa and Polynesia)

Prophetic Indigenous voices on the planetary crisis – A lament in the present and a horizon of Good. 

Nau mai, Haere mai, Me’a mai,

You are all welcome to this wānanga and talanoa. This is a wānanga and talanoa (presentation and discussion) across the Anglican Communion.

God has given us this gift of life, of the earth, and of all creation. It is a gift, a present, an offering. We are the earth’s kaitiaki (guardians) and we have failed in our responsibility to ‘cultivate and care for the earth.’ As Indigenous people, we cannot turn our back on our brothers and sisters, on mother earth.

This is our koha from Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, Monday 30thNovember @ 3pm (NZDT).
