Scripture Gospel of Luke 13:1-9 “At that very time there were some present who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2He asked them, “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were worse sinners than all other Galileans? 3No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as they did. 4Or those eighteen who were killed when the tower of Siloam fell on them—do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish just as they did.”
6Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and found none. 7So he said to the gardener, ‘See here! For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and still I find none. Cut it down! Why should it be wasting the soil?’ 8He replied, ‘Sir, let it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and put manure on it. 9If it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”

Larger Mind of God
Musical ResponseThe Garden Song David Mallett
Chorus Inch by inch, row by row, Gonna make this garden grow
All it takes is a rake and a hoe, And a piece of fertile ground
Inch by inch, row by row, Someone bless these seeds I sow
Please God warm them from below, Till the rain comes tumbling down.
1. Pulling weeds and picking stones ,We are made of dreams and bones
Feel the need to grow my own, Cause the time is close at hand
Grain for grain, sun and rain, Find my way in nature's chain
Tune my body and my brain, To the music from the land.
2. Plant your rows straight and long, Temper them with prayer and song
Mother Earth will make you strong, If you give her love and care
Mother crow watching me , From her perch in yonder tree
In my garden I'm as free, As that feathered mother up there.
Anointingand Blessingfor Garden and One Year Growth
Closing PrayerSt. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi Prayer
Make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy, And where there is sadness, joy, joy, joy. God grant that I may not so much seek; To be consoled as to console; To be understood, as to understand; To be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive, It is in pardoning that we pardoned. And it is in dying that we are born, to Eternal Life. Amen, Amen, Amen

Invitations: Our current ecologic crisis is a call to awaken to the reverence of life and the truth that all nature is alive and sacred. As we witness the sixth extinction of life on earth, the only one created by us humans, we are invited to reclaim the ancient wisdom traditions. We are one organic, interspecies, interconnected whole. What we do affects everyone else. Every Sunday at 5 pm we acknowledge that we need one another more than ever before . and commune with the Great Spirit. We celebrate the wisdom traditions from the East, West, indigenous peoples, new science as we study the teachings of Jesus and the Bible and the newly found gnostic gospels.
