In this time of uncertainty, when it seems as if the whole world has lost its way, let us gather around the communion table and thank God for that which we have in common:
Mother and Father God,
We thank you for autumn:
for falling temperatures and morning chill,
trees turned gold and red, brown and orange,
the smell of burning leaves, the joy of leaf-pile jumping.
As we share this bread we thank you for the interplay
of outside temperatures and inside warmth,
the promise of cider and pumpkin bread,
the blessing of blankets and sweaters.
As we drink this sweet autumn gift from the vine,
the beauty and hope in the change of season,
the promise that the coming of autumn heralds another ending,
a new beginning, and the wonder of another winter,
another spring, another summer yet to come.
