Lord God, Creator of heaven and earth:
We give you thanks and praise
for the wonders of creation.
You are robed in splendor,
like maples in autumn.
You have made your home among us
and filled the earth with goodness.
In you we live, and move,
and have our being.
Yet, we hear creation groaning,
broken and bruised by our sinful ways.
Forgive us, and restore shalom
among us and all creatures of creation.
Thank you for your love poured out
upon the whole universe.
