A blessing for Earth Day 2020:
Today we hold the earth.
We hold all who suffer directly or indirectly from Covid19.
We hold everyone who suffers from storms and droughts intensified by climate change.
We hold all species that suffer.
We hold world leaders delegated to make decisions for life.
We pray that the web of life may be mended through courageous actions to limit carbon emissions.
We pray for right action for adaptation and mitigation to help our already suffering earth community.
We pray that love and wisdom may inspire my actions and our actions as communities so that we may with integrity,
look into the eyes of all living beings and truthfully say we are doing our best to care for them and the future of the children. May love transform us and our world with new steps towards life.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
