Leader: How beautiful is God’s presence in all the earth!  We see God’s glory                  in the expanse of the heavens and in the smallest bug.
All:  All plants and animals, dirt and oceans are God’s creation.  All that                God has made reflects God’s goodness.

All: God blesses us day by day with good things.  We are given responsibility                to care for all created things.
Leader:  We gather to praise God and be with one another.  We celebrate all the            ways that God is revealed to us.
