Ascension day – Sunflower palace

On Ascension Day La Cote a handsome group gathered for a prayer walk in Coinsins at Peta and John Tracy’s place. In beautiful weather we walked in silence and stopped at designated places where we read from Scripture and prayed.
At the Sunflower Palace (an insect hotel) we prayed :
“Creator God – We give you thanks and praise for insects and bees, all essential creatures of the ecosystem and, in seeing these special homes to sustain and promote their well-being, we think of habitat, shelter, a safe place in which to thrive. We pray for those who have no home to call their own and have fled from their countries at huge risk, especially the refugees in our midst. Give us willing hearts, Lord, and inspire us to action in welcoming them and providing a safe place for them to thrive. Amen.”
