On Sunday 11th October The Well, our Celtic Worship community gathered to reflect on migrations. Here is a snippet from this moving service or download the full thing here.
seedtime has ripened into harvest,
your earth has yielded fruits.
Winter’s cleansing cold
gave way to spring’s gentle warmth,
and now summer’s full sun
has offered us autumn gifts.
Giver of all, we come to worship you.
Thank you for the landscape of many deepening hues,
the migration of bird flocks.
Lord of the leaves and the land,
open the gate to plenty, to ripening fruit and grain,
to the maturing of wisdom.
