Thanksgiving Prayer

diversity-table-crop

Oh God – Creator, Savior, Helper

We thank you

for red soil, and black soil, and sandy soil and loamy soil

GOOD EARTH

for rice, and corn, and wheat and cassava

GOOD BREAD

for apples, and dates, and grapes and lychee

GOOD FRUIT

for salmon, and catfish, and walnuts and soy

GOOD MEAT

For red, and yellow, and blue and green

GOOD COLORS

You show your perfection not in one perfect thing

but in the unending diversity of your creation.

And so we gather

with all our languages and customs, all our heights and weights, all our genders and eye colors

at one table – made perfect in its almost infinite diversity

to sing to you our songs of

PRAISE

and

THANKSGIVING.

Amen
