Sneak preview of “A TIME FOR LIFE”

Here are some of the texts from Robert Kyr’s A TIME FOR LIFE:


“O Creator:
Look at our brokenness.

In all creation,
Only the human family
Has strayed from the Sacred Way.

O Creator:
Teach us love, compassion, and honor,
So we may heal the earth.
So we may heal each other.”

–Ojibway Prayer, adapted by Robert Kyr


“O Creator:
Guide us to preserve your creation.
help us to protect the fullness of nature
In which we live and move and have our being.
Give us the breath of winds.
Give us the flow of waters.
Give us light.”

–Adapted by Robert Kyr from the Orthodox “Service for the Environment”


“A time for war
And a time for peace;
A time to mourn
And a time to dance;
A time for silence
And a time for music–
A time for life
And only life.”

–Adapted by Robert Kyr from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
