The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
The God of Glory thunders,
the Lord over the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
The voice of the Lord is full of majesty. (Ps. 29:3-4)
The whole earth is full of his glory. (Isa. 6:3)
We reflect on the power of God, who calls the natural world into existence, in all its beauty, majesty and ambiguity.
Let us pray that we will learn to live respectfully within the community of creation, which in its interrelatedness is a reflection of the divine dance of the Trinity.
We remember in prayer today:
Those who have suffered this year from the effects of flood or fire.
All those whose voices and actions contribute to protection of the natural world.
