HYMN Click and return to this page for the words

Think of a world without any flowers

Think of a world without any flowers,
think of a world without any trees,
think of a sky without any sunshine,
think of the air without any breeze.
We thank you, Lord, for flowers and trees and sunshine,
we thank you, Lord, and praise your holy name.

Think of the world without any animals,
think of a field without any herd,
think of a stream without any fishes,
think of a dawn without any bird.
We thank you, Lord, for all your living creatures,
we thank you, Lord, and praise your holy name.

 

Think of a world without any people,
think of a street with no-one living there,
think of a town without any houses,
no-one to love and nobody to care.
We thank you, Lord, for families and friendships,
we thank you, Lord, and praise your holy name.

INTERVIEW 

David talks to Cindy about her family's decision to live without plastic.

Creator of our common home,
You fill the earth and sea and sky with life
Forgive us our neglect of your creation
The choking waste of our pollution
The damage done by careless habits
And our indifference to future generations.
Help us to amend our lives
To refuse more plastic if we can’t reuse it
To lift our voice for lasting change
And to live well and gently on the earth
To the glory of your Son, the Living Word
Through whom you made this fragile world. 
Amen

Rt Revd Steven Croft, Bishop of Oxford

OUR BEAUTIFUL WORLD A gallery of pictures created by Tessa, Zara, Sophie, Summer and Meghan 

WHAT I'M DOING TO REDUCE MY CARBON FOOTPRINT

Laura Grundy tells us why she has adopted a vegetarian diet:

PRAYERS Led by Judith

Join Francis saying the LORD'S PRAYER

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.  

Thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.  

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  

For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,

for ever and ever. 

Amen
