We celebrate God’s bounty in this time of Harvest and we are grateful for the fruitfulness of earth. We pray for those who farm and those who have learned to value and preserve seeds that produce plants with variety, texture, and taste. We also pray for those who develop standards that help us to identify products that are not only healthy for us but also for the planet. We ask pardon for our systems of greed that pollute the soil and water with toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers; systems that do not question the safety of hormone use in our cattle; and systems that genetically engineer and modify the plant crops. Let us pray for wisdom and commit ourselves to preserve our farms and to care for earth.
