Abraham's Tent - A home for all....

Amid crises that have shaken our world, the global Christian family is awakened to the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and with each other during the ecumenical Season of Creation.

During the 2021 Season of Creation thousands of Christians on six continents gather for a time of restoration and hope, a jubilee for our Earth, and to discover radically new ways of living with creation.

More than ever before, the global Christian family will unite to pray and take action for our common home.
