A Prayer of Love: December 25
Let us pray:
On this Christmas morning, call us back to honor the earth and the people who steward it.
Bring us to the roots of our ancestors, into the earth, and into right-relationship with the local ecosystems around us.
Each time we garden or farm or even gather greens from the vegetable aisle, call us into local economies of intentional care for each other.
Remind us of the lowly birth, on the farm, of one who would liberate us all. Amen
And Merry Christmas!
