Earth Day 2021:  Care for Our Common Home

Happy Earth Day: April 22, 2021


As we gather this Earth Day in praise and thanksgiving for

Grant, we pray, the courage to speak on behalf of the soft soil under our feet, the running and still waters, the warmth of the sun on our face, and all the crawling, flying and swimming creatures you love.


May our courage to speak translate into actions that protect our planet – so that our children and their children might enjoy the fruits of what we sow. In your name, we pray: AMEN
