Consider this prayer from the Ute Tribe:
“Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children.”
May we be mindful and actively caring for our world. May we continue to learn so that we may be sources of encouragement and creativity in treating our earth well.
