The Planted Church

Gracious God, Giver of life,

Long ago,
a tree was planted by your grace
and watered by your providential care.

It was robbed of
life and beauty,
and used to fashion a cross
to bear body of the Christ,
broken for our redemption.

And so, Lord, like that tree,
we have been planted,
watered, and have grown,
yet the time has come for us
to offer our lives to you,
not just to bear,
but to become
the body of Christ
in this world.

Amen
