you stop, stoop, kneel, and embrace
everyone and everything in need of your love and care.
May I join you today in caring for your creation,
embracing my role within the family of life.
—Sam Hamilton-Poore, Earth Gospel: A Guide to Prayer for God’s Creation (Upper Room Books, 2009)
How might you join the Spirit in caring for creation? Join the conversation.
Lift up your eyes on high and see:
Who created these?
He who brings out their host and numbers them,
calling them all by name;
because he is great in strength,
mighty in power,
not one is missing.
—Isaiah 40:26 (NRSV)
