The paradigm of Creation Spirituality offers a fresh approach to our spiritual journeys. In qEmerging Word, q Donald Schmidt provides both an introduction to Creation Spirituality for those who may not be familiar with it, as well as a quick history of lectionary use in the Christian tradition and an overview of the church year.
