Closing Commission: Walk Gently Upon the Earth

Here’s a closing commission for a day of thanksgiving, or a service that focuses on our relationship with creation.  It was posted on the Third Space blog.

Closing Commission and Prayer

May we always walk gently upon the Earth,
in right relationship,
nurtured by your love,
open to the wind of the Spirit,
taking only what we need,
always open to the needs of others,
making choices that bring wellbeing,
living with generosity,
striving for justice,
honouring all with reverence,
reconciling and peacemaking,
mindful of those who will come after,
recognising our proper place as part of your creation.

Grant us the strength and courage, Lord,
for such a radical transformation into your Kingdom.
