Lover of Mercy and Bearer of Peace lead us in the dance of restoration and renewal, the dance of daily choosing what is most ethical and most good, what alleviates or bears the least suffering. May we rejoice in this dance as we add to life's blessings, and may we give thanks for the blessings we know. May we laugh loudly and love boldly and live generously all our days, and when we falter in the dance, may we be accompanied by those who remember the whirl and embrace of mercy and peace. When others falter, may we be those who remember with them and reinvite them into the dance, giving and receiving, all our nights and all our days. Love of Mercy and Bearer of Peace lead us in the dance of restoration and renewal, now and evermore. Amen.
