Creator God, as we gather, your greatness is all around us.  We come with gratitude for your love, mercy, and compassion offered freely for all.  We praise you and give you thanks that you are faithful in your promises.  You have replenished the earth enough so that all will be satisfied.  We thank you for the harvest of our gardens and crops that feed us.  We come to you, O God, with praise and thanksgiving for your promises of enough for all.  In Jesus’ holy name, we pray.  Amen.

Irma Nadeau, Trinity U.C., Winnipeg, Man.
