Creation understands interdependence
Embraces it, models it
Reveals to us that in our connection we have our very being
Creation is calling us back to life
I pray we humans get it …
The Creator is conspiring on our behalf
Revealing a living hope
Filling us with boldness
Showering us with love
Grounding us in justice
I pray we humans respond …
Our children and their children and generations to come are relying on us.
Let it be so, God.
Amen and ashé
