Birthing God, who designed the cyclical seasons of the earth,
Your Presence in this moment beckons us to focus on the needs of this new day. And like any other day, we are grateful for the rhythmic nurture you provide. You shape us through both the mundane and the extraordinary events that mark our time. You deliver us in our work and in our play. Whether we are close or far away, may this New Year be rich in the gifts we return to you. Amen.
