From Last February, As Winter Approaches

We have canceled Sunday activities at church for tomorrow

but you won't cancel worship, will you?

For coming safely through a storm,
For making safe choices about travel,
and about shoveling,
For making caring choices about checking in with neighbors,
and making sure you drink enough water.
For those who are in distress,
from cold,
from injury,
and any other kind of danger.
Holy One, in your loving mercy, Hear our prayer!

For throwing snow at your brother on a snowy deck,
For working side by side on a big task,
For having something special like cookies in the oven,
For the gladness of neighbors,
For the power of the plow, the blower, and the shovel,
For having prepared,
For laughing with delight at the beauty of this creation,
this new world,
And for all angels, in balaclavas, in weather centers, and in the snow,
Holy One, with joyful hearts, We give you thanks!
