We trust in the truth that one day is but a moment in your eternity and one year is also momentary.

Since all time is contained in you, we look to you for deeper anchoring in the changes of the world and its climate.

While there are those who are shivering more deeply than their normal, others are IMG_6700experiencing higher temperatures. The loss of snowpack affects animals, water resources, and patterns of recreation and subsistence.

We still hold close our siblings who remain deeply affected by fires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and all manner of “natural” disaster.

We look to you, not only for sustained strength in recovery, but also for guidance in how to steward the resources of creation.

Through your healing Spirit, help us to have the wisdom and will to care for your land, your water, your space, your animals, and your people.
