Genesis 29:1-14

Loving Divine Family,

We come to Jacob’s Well, this faith-marker of our ancestors. You meet us here, wrapping us in the sacred shroud of prayer with you. We realize the nature of our community. We are all related – cousins and siblings; all of us are your children. Even these rocks and trees, which seem still and without spirit, everything in creation is our relations. We feel the embrace of those around us and those who have gone before us; who  also draw near to us.

In our everyday mundane activities, we come to the well like we often do. We expect the sameness; but you surprise us with answered prayers, a renewed relationship with you, and the gift of community. Thank you for being with us in our everyday mundane activities.

I feel your welcoming embrace today, O Creator, and thank you for…

The glow of Grandmother Moon in the night watches reveals the vastness of this land. The fields are waking, the birds are returning. The trees will soon begin to sing as you call all of us to return to you. All our relations journey together from across this land in the ceremony of new life.

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
