every good gift
(offering blessing - responsive)
Every good gift
comes from our father the sky, our mother the earth
from the richness of the land and the bounty of the sea.
May Sophia-Wisdom speak to us in all creation
and may these offerings be multiplied
like the fishes and loaves at Galilee—
swelling tides of generosity to those in need:
the earth and its inhabitants transformed
through our generosity of spirit and our gifts.
