Vernal Equinox Ceremony March 20, 2015
With all the snow we've been experiencing, we will be so happy for spring this year. Intentionally expressing gratitude for all of the Earth is one way to show this happiness. We tend to forget to take time to do this as we go about our daily lives. You're invited to gather together with us for a time of peaceful thanksgiving for all of the precious life on this wonderful planet we live on. We'll be meeting at the Farmhouse at 7:00 pm and then walking together in silence to the center of the meadow where the fields, forest, and wide-open sky will surround us. Once there, per our tradition, we will be sharing the Haudenosaunee’s Thanksgiving Address with time for silence both before and after the address. All, including children, are very welcome. Please let us know (wendy.duke@comcast.net) if you plan to come. Note: the actual Vernal Equinox occurs at 6:45 pm. The ceremony will conclude around 7:45 'ish pm

For Reflection

Tell me the landscape in which you live and I will tell you who you are.

Creator God, You have called us to be keepers of your Earth; through greed, we have created an economy that destroys the web of life. We have changed our climate and drown in despair. Let oceans of justice flow, may we learn to sustain and renew the life of our Mother Earth. We pray for our leaders, custodians of Mother Earth. May they negotiate with wisdom and fairness, may they act with compassion and courage, and lead us in the path of justice for the sake of our children and our children's children.

~ Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.
