Prayer   (in unison)      Dear God,

We come to give thanks for you Holy One and your spectacular awe inspiring creation. You who we call by many names, you who live and dance  in all forms of life large and small, you who are dance with all of us in loving relationship. You who are in the microscopic and  in the hugeness of galaxies, we are in awe of you and all nature that is sacred and alive. We come to tell the truth of our oneness and the interconnectedness with all life forms everywhere. We come to ask you gracious God to fill us with courage to live in counter cultural gratitude, fearlessness and love. You who come to us when we are in the most need, you who come when are sick and alone, we give thanks.  You who are the photosynthesis of life giving greening, you Holy One open our hearts and spirits in love, you who come to us when we least expect it we give thanks. Please bless our small church that it may teach the awakening you call us to during this time of planetary crisis. We have all become mentally ill for we have forgotten you and lived alienated from you and your healing holiness.   You the God of love, we come to pray to dedicate our church and our lives tocare for our common home Mother earth and all her creatures. We come to pray for her, Mother earth a living being and all her living creatures. Humbly we give thanks and praise and rejoice at the wonder of the universe and our part in it. Amen

Please share what on earth you are grateful for.

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, Mary Magdalene  and the Bible and  the newly found gnostic gospels.
