This prayer is the Church of England’s alternative Collect for last Sunday.
It moved me by the beauty of its words and the desire for a love of our world. Creation and our planet as well as us as God’s people and Stewards, need all of that very much at the moment.
I’ve had the photo in my library for some time and as an expression of the prayer it feels just right.
Please pray the prayer and live it as gently and meaningfully as those lovely collared doves.
