“There is a new story waiting to be born, waiting to redeem the planet and nourish our souls.

Earth Prayer

Great Spirit,
give us hearts to understand,
never to take
from creation’s beauty more than we give,
never to destroy wantonly for the furtherance of greed,
never to deny to give our hands for the building of
earth’s beauty,
never to take from her what we cannot use.
Give us hearts to understand that to destroy earth’s
music is to create confusion,
that to wreck her appearance is to blind us to beauty,
that to callously pollute her fragrance is to make a
house of stench,
that as we care for her she will care for us. Amen.
