Blessing of the Farmers Market

Our Farmers Market begins today (4pm)!

Here is the blessing as we begin the season:

BLESSING FOR THE FARMERS MARKET

 

PSALM 67

May God be gracious to us and bless us    and make his face to shine upon us, that your way may be known upon earth,    your saving power among all nations. Let the peoples praise you, O God;    let all the peoples praise you. The earth has yielded its increase;    God, our God, has blessed us. May God continue to bless us;    let all the ends of the earth revere our Creator.

 

Leader:

For the goodness of the land;

For the gift of life from all creation;

For the strength and joy in our labor;

For the community we build through our sharing,

 

People:

Thank you, God!

 

Leader:

God of all creation, bless and keep

the grower and the harvester,

the cook and the cleaner

who gather here today.

Bless the fruit with your sweetness,

bless the meat with your savor,

bless the vegetables with your ripeness,

that these gifts will turn hunger into feasts

and strangers into friends.

 

People:

Amen!

 

Leader:

May the sweet peace of the Father be with us,

May the pungent joy of Mary’s Son be with us,

May the juicy presence of the Spirit be with us,

this day and all days. Amen.
