Holy Sower, Holy Harvester-
For the ones who till the ground, we celebrate.
For their early hours and long days, for their weathered hands which plow and pluck, for their strategic minds which plans out lands- – we laud their exceptional efforts.
Bless their hours as they intensely labor in the fields. Bless their land as the seeds burst forth from the soil. Bless the roots as they embed within the dirt. Bless the clouds which bring forth rain, and bless the sun which dances upon the leaves of trees our farmers have planted.
May our farmers, landscapers, and all who work in gardens find time to rest. May their sabbaths be filled with moments of sleep and joy.
We thank you for their endeavors in co-creating with you: the fruits and grains, the vegetables and beans, and the trees which shade our grounds.

We get our third round of chicks in just a few days time, which means our restorative agriculture farm is back in full swing for the season. A timely prayer, indeed. If I haven’t mentioned it before, I love this Lenten series. Thank you.
