Fauna refers to the all the living species on planet Earth—in the wild, in our lives and in our soils.

In our call to worship we express our kinship with the animal world. We are, in fact, a family of fauna—both biologically and spiritually. The creatures of Earth are our kin. We have all emerged from Earth and return to Earth. All living things are animated by the very breath/spirit of God. The loss or survival of a given species is a family matter.

 

We invite our fauna family to worship with us,
All our kin living on this planet, from the busiest bee to the tallest giraffe.
We remember our ancient relatives who became extinct,
Dinosaurs, carrier pigeons, Newfoundland wolves, and the woolly mammoths. 

We join our brothers and sisters in praising God,
Gliding eagles and watchful owls
Gorillas in the mist and polar bears in the snow.
We summon the kin we have come to love,
The stray cat and the backyard dog, the pet rabbit, the pony, and the little lamb.
All our fauna family in the wild,
Raise your voices to the skies in a family festival of praise.
Sing, family, sing!
A fauna song of praise!
We celebrate with our fauna family.
Sing, family, sing!
