Earth Day Sunday Prayer Station

On one or more tables around the sanctuary, place a state, regional or world map along with a basket of small stones. Invite worshipers to place a stone on the map and say a prayer of thanksgiving and blessings for farmers who grow food for us to eat; also to pray for all who struggle with climate change as they try to grow food, locally and around the world.
