God of all Creation,
Today we remember all life that has journeyed back to You.
We remember family and friends
Who have closely touched our lives.
We remember our sisters and brothers
Who are nameless to us yet form part of our global family.
We remember our sisters and brothers who are eco-martyrs
Who have had their lives violently and unjustly taken from them for their defense of Creation.
We remember creatures big and small,
Which through human-induced extinction no longer roam the land, soar through the skies, or swim in the oceans.
We remember the natural world, lakes and rivers, forests and fields, mountains and valleys
That have been destroyed for human consumption.
We believe that You came for the salvation of the entire world and all the life it holds.
We trust that You have welcomed all Creation that has died in this earthly world into the Cosmic Home.
