Offertory for Spring

Kia Ora,

Inspired by your spring newsletter, and with thoughts of Spring Flower Sunday I wrote this offertory prayer that may be of use to others.

Coins and rice seeds

Offertory for Spring

Renewing God
As we contemplate the season of spring
we see connection between coins and seeds;
Both come in various sizes and colours,
and bear different markings,
are symmetrical, and fit in pockets.
Held in our gaze they appear lifeless
yet both hold the power of transformation.

We ask that you bless our coins
brought here today
along with paper tokens of notes
and unseen bank transfers;
May our offerings be placed in
environments that permit them to fulfil
their potential of bringing beauty and health
to this world we all share.  Amen.
