This reflection can be accompanied by subjects of the season such as flowers, feathers, etc. and by lighting a candle to symbolize Presence and Light.
- Eyes can be closed,
- feet grounded on the floor,
- grounded in the mission to be a voice on behalf of God’s Creation and our neighbors harmed by environmental injustices
SILENT MYSTERY IN AND AROUND US,
SPIRIT IN ALL OF CREATION,
WE GATHER HERE TO GIVE THANKS FOR THE BEAUTY OF SPRING IN THESE SACRED MOUNTAINS;
TO CELEBRATE WHAT SO MANY ARE DOING FOR CREATION IN THEIR PLACES OF WORSHIP AND SPIRITUAL CENTERS.
WE GATHER TO DESIGN, TO CO-CREATE , TO SPEAK AND TO ACT IN NEW WAYS WAYS THAT WILL PROTECT THE NATURAL WORLD FROM THE IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND OVERCONSUMPTION,
AS WE RESPOND TO OUR CALLING TO CARE FOR CREATION.
WE ARE THANKFUL FOR OUR LIVES AND THE BLESSINGS WE RECEIVE FROM MOTHER EARTH
AND, WE ASK FOR WISDOM IN ALL OUR ENDEAVORS.
AMEN, AH HO
