Creation reminds us we are a part of something magnificent and awesome

In this there is great responsibility and accountability

To you, Creator

To your people

All your people

All of creation

May we take the time to listen to what creation is telling us today, God

May we be present to her groans

May we offer ourselves as stewards and relinquish our need to control

*

Creation reminds us of the significance of changing seasons

In this there is wonderful possibility and promise

For true justice

Audacious joy

Everlasting love

And a peace that surpasses all understanding

May we take the time to listen to what creation is telling us today, God

May we be present to her wisdom

May we open ourselves to being transformed by what we learn and reaffirm our call to abundant life

Abundant life

Abundant life for all

All creation

All of us

*

For creation will not have it any other way

Amen and amen
