For those not following a lectionary (and perhaps even for those who are), some references to specific passages in sacred texts may be helpful. The following websites offer some suggestions:
Greenfaith’s section on biblical references for eco-themed worship
Earth Ministry/Washington IPL’s section on scripture
The Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota website includes lectionary readings, commentaries, andÂ environmental reflections
CreationCare.org, sponsored by the Evangelical Environmental Network, includes educational materials, advocacy resources, and Scripture
You may also wish to refer to The Green Bible, which highlights in green the biblical texts that focus on creation and how the divine relates to it. The Green Bible uses the New Revised Standard Version and also includes essays, study suggestions, and other resources.
Check our Sermons section for text references. Each sermon listing includes the texts used.
