Blessing of Fields and Gardens

Use this prayer when preparing the soil and planting seeds or bulbs.

O God, our creator, from the earth you bring forth fruits and vegetables, grains and flowers, to nourish and delight us.  Grant that this land, sustanined by rain and favorable weather and cultivated by human hands, may bring forth an abundant harvest, through Jesus Christ oru Lord.  Amen.

Blessings for Travelers

O God, whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go:

  • Preserve us/those who travel:
  • surround us/them with your loving care;
  • protect us/them from every danger;
  • and bring us/them in safety to our/their journey's end;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.


The Mustard Seed


The mustard seed becomes a shrub that shelters the birds, recalling ancient images of the tree of life.  We'd expect a cedar or a sequoia, but Jesus finds the power of God better imaged in a tiny, no-account seed.  It's not the way we expect divine activity to look.  Yet the tree of life is here, in the cross around which we gather, the tree into which we are grafted through baptism, the true vines that nourishes us with its fruit in the cup we share.  It may not appear all that impressive, but while nobody's looking it grows with a power beyond our understanding.


The Eighth Sunday after Pentecost


When Amos told what he saw when God held up the plumb line of justice, next to Israel---that the poor where being trampled---he was a threat to the power of priests and king.  John the Baptist, also spoke truth to power, and Herod had him beheaded.  In Herod's fear that Jesus is John returned from the dead, we may hear hope for the oppressed:  that all the prophets killed through the ages are alive in Jesus.  We are called to witness to justice in company with them.
