Sky Sunday: Dominion and Exploitation

September 2018 Post-Pentecost Worship Planning Series

Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost 2018, Year B

Your sermon this Sunday could focus on God, the creator of the sky, and how the creator is revealed to us through God’s creation. Are we paying attention? Do we take time to enjoy God’s creation and to observe as God does?

Offertory Prayer

Loving Father, Redeeming Son, and Holy Spirit: with our every breath, the very air that fills our lungs draws us closer to you. The water, food, and air that keep us alive are gifts from your goodness. Every gift we offer back to you is a result of our use of these basic gifts through your creation. As we bring our gifts to you this morning, remind us once again that the sky, the sea, the ground we walk on, and all the plants and animals are foundational blessings for which you have given us both charge and accountability, not just for our use but for what we leave for the generations that follow. We pray, through your love, that we may be found faithful stewards. In Christ, we pray. Amen. [Psalm 19]
