Reflection and Renewal: Earth Day Weekend

God of All Life,

We give thanks for the beautiful, life-giving Earth that you created and called good.

We ask forgiveness for all of the ways in which we have failed to be faithful stewards of our common home; which you have called us to restore and renew.

We ask forgiveness for the ways in which we haven’t loved our neighbors as much as we’ve loved ourselves.  May we learn to respect all life, in which your spirit dwells, as a sacred gift.

Thank you for inviting us to take part in your kingdom work of making all things new again.

Help us to live a fully-engaged life.
