Thank God for opportunities to enjoy nature, whether in a wilderness area, urban park, community garden or forest preserve. Give thanks for how nature and fresh air renew us and lift our spirits, and pray that our neighbors with mobility challenges can get outdoors to experience and enjoy the blessings of creation.

1Praise the LORD!  Praise the LORD from the heavens;
 praise him in the heights!
 5Let them praise the name of the LORD,
 for he commanded and they were created.

 11Kings of the earth and all peoples,
 princes and all rulers of the earth!
 12Young men and women alike,
 old and young together!
 13Let them praise the name of the LORD,
 for his name alone is exalted;
 his glory is above earth and heaven.

                                    Psalm 148

In the midst of the wrenching circumstances of pandemic and protest, it’s easy to forget the good things of creation. Take a sabbath moment to enjoy God’s good creation.

Sovereign of the universe, your first covenant of mercy was with every living creature. With all the world’s people, may we who are washed into new life through baptism seek the way of your new creation, the way of justice and care, mercy and peace; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
