Here’s an invitation to the offering inspired by Psalm 65. It comes from the United Church of Christ’s Worship Ways website.
(inspired by Psalm 65)
This is how the earth praises God:
giving thanks for God’s abundance!
The meadows clothe themselves with flocks
and the valleys deck themselves
with shimmering fields of grain,
sharing their bounty with the rest of creation.
We, too, are to worship God
by being abundant and fruitful with our lives,
offering up our yields as if they were songs of joyful praise.
Let us worship God with our gifts.
