I am currently on a Celtic Prayer Retreat led by Christine Sine of Mustard Seed Associates (msainfo.us) We had a lovely morning prayer moment this morning with the prayers of the people litany which Christine Sine wrote. It speaks to an environmental justice as part of God's Kin-Dom.

Upon all farmers, market gardeners, foresters and all who work the land,

Lord, have mercy,

Upon ranchers, zoo keepers, veterinarians and all who work with animals,

Lord, have mercy,

Upon ranchers, zoo keepers, veterinarians and all who work with animals,

Lord, have mercy,

Upon all fisherpeople, sailors and those who work at sea,

Lord, have mercy,

Upon all whose homes are destroyed by tsunami or earthquake or hurricane,

Christ, have mercy,

Upon all whose land has been spoiled by drought or flood or war,

Christ, have mercy,

Upon all those who suffer through pollution and destruction of creation,

Christ, have mercy,

Upon conservationists, park rangers and all who care for God's good creation,

Lord, have mercy,

Upon landscape gardeners, horticulturalists and all who preserve and restore the earth's beauty,

Lord, have mercy,

Upon all God's creatures, great and small, and on all who care for their environment,

Lord, have mercy.

Amen? Amen!

Shalom,

Terri
