Confession, prompted by a mustard seed

God of small things
we marvel that you should care
for the smallest of sparrows
and the tiniest of seeds

while we attend
to the large
and the loud
and the lofty

forgive us, God

teach us
to look with tenderness
on all your creatures

for you love us all
though we are
so small
