Followed by a ‘bring and share’ Harvest Lunch
Almighty and Everlasting God, who hast graciously given to us the fruits of the earth in their season ; We yield thee humble and hearty thanks for these thy bounties, beseeching thee to give us grace rightly to use them to thy glory and the relief of those that need through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Collect for Thanksgiving for Harvest from the BCP as proposed in 1928
you crown the year with your goodness
and give us the fruits of the earth in their season:
Grant that we may use them to your glory,
for the relief of those in need
and for our own well-being;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
