Today we had our second chapel on the throughline of Earthkeeping.
Some of our students led us in praise and worship songs.
How many are your works, Lord!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures.
Our Grade 6 students created a slide show based on Psalm
Some of our students shared a sacrifice of praise with liturgical dance to the
song Joy by Rend Collective.
We then got together with our GIFT groups (Growing In Faith Together).
In our mystery bag were some things found in creation. Using only our sense of touch, we explored creation from a different perspective. We can't help but marvel at His creation when we take the time to use our senses to notice and enjoy.
However, we know that sin is also evident in creation and in how we care for the earth.
We are concerned and want to help by being better earth keepers.
We love this wonderful earth you have created.
We are worried about the many things which cause it harm.
We understand that there are many problems with our environment.
We ask you, God, to help us find ways to take better care of our earth.
We know there are many people working to help the earth and we would like to find our own ways to be stewards of creation. Amen
