Table Grace in Thanksgiving

To God, Creator of all that is,

Source of all we have been given,

For the dear one who has prepared,

For dear ones with us,

For dear ones far away,

For dear ones no longer here,

For dear ones yet to come.

For all this table holds,

For the garden from which this comes,

For the earth, the sun and rain,

For the plants and the fruits that emerged,

For the gardener,

For those who harvest,

For animals,

For those who raise them with care and respect.

Open us to receive with care and respect,

The blessings of our table,

To nurture our bodies, minds, and spirits,

To live in a fullness that honors the blessing

Of all that God has provided.

Amen.
