In the darkness of the night, may we remember who we are and how we yearn to be, our faithful promises and our faithful failures. May we turn back again to our faithful promises, the ones that encourage us to risk vulnerability, the ones that teach us to reach out to those we do not really know and do not appreciate, the ones that call us back to building peace and growing kindness. In our faithful turning, may we touch the heart of hope, give thanks for each blessing known. In the darkness of the night, let us remember who we are and keep risking faithfully. Amen.
