Prayer because of the Extinction Rebellion

Holy One of many names,

when Earth Day defaults to cloth grocery bags
drinking straws, slightly shorter showers,
and Creation Care to prayers
and general approval
of high school students on strike,

the Extinction Rebellion comes —
to the London Underground
the International Criminal Court
in the Hague,
Ela Park in Los Angeles,
and New York City Hall,
and to hearts fearful and hopeful.

Turn over some tables.
Remind us that your earth
shall be called an Earth of Life
for all people —

and your Resurrected presence
was never mistaken for a politician,
a soldier, even a disciple,
but a Gardener.

Startle us — whether we join
this movement or another —

into caring for the fragile future
of children yet unborn. amen
