A Collect to Tend Creation Well
God of all creation, who has leased to us your work, we praise you for the crafting you have done in creating this world. As you have placed it in our care, call us again to tend it rightly, knowing that it belongs to you and that our livelihoods are tied to it, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.
'"Listen to another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a wine press in it, and built a watchtower. Then he leased it to tenants and went to another country."' - Matthew 21:33
