Thanksgiving for the colors — of nature and of people from Aotearoa

Beverley L. Osborn of Aotearoa/New Zealand offers a prayer of thanks …

God of brilliant sunsets and shining rainbows,
God of golden daffodils and glowing Autumn leaves,
God of all the blues of sunlit seas,
God of all the shades of green in bush and field,
in rivers and oceans and lakes,
in rough stones on a beach and polished jewels in a showcase.

God of people, brown and amber, pink and ebony,
artistic and  athletic, practical and visionary,
compassionate and laughter-bringing.

God who colours us a world of variety,
We thank you that you have made each of us unique,
that you call us to contribute our special colours to the life around us.
We come to you in thanksgiving and worship. Amen
