Prelude and Bringing in the Light

Call to Worship
One: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,
All: and it has been in our care ever since.
One: We have been entrusted with the wind and the water,
All: we hold in our care the plants and the animals.
One: In our stewardship of creation we must consider those who will come after us,
All: for the world was not created for us alone.
One: May we live gracefully and with an eye to the future,
All: as we seek to live the ways of our Creator and Sustainer

Sending Prayer

Creator of all life, we celebrate the splendor of your works. We give you thanks for each and every carefully created life on this planet. Fill our hearts with a compassion that can only come from recognizing that we are connected. May we live in such a way that the works of your hands, the creatures and people that surround us, might be honored and cared for. May we learn about our lives, from theirs. Amen.
