Prayer of Conservation

Rev'd Katherine Loynd, rector of Trinity Church St. Thomas, sent the following prayer that Bishop Terry Dance prayed when he dedicated their programmable thermostats. Digital thermostats help reduce a church's heating and air conditioning needs at times when their not necessary. On Sunday February 6th, 2011 Bishop Terry prayed:

Creator God, in the beginning you created all things; the sun and the sky, the waters and the dry lands, the plants and the animals; and you entrusted human beings with the stewardship of your creation.  In our time, we have become aware of the need to care for your creation with greater diligence; to be mindful of the needs of others with whom we share this fragile earth our island home and of the generations to come.  With the installation of new programmable thermostats, Trinity Church has taken one small step towards reducing our carbon footprint.  We ask your blessing upon these thermostats, that they may assist in the conservation of energy; keeping us ever mindful of our commitment to be good stewards of the resources you have provided; in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Such prayers of dedication are the keystones of our conservation. Thank you Rev'd Loynd and Bishop Terry.
