for Lunar New Year
Joyfully we welcome and celebrate the Lunar New Year! Wisdom open our hearts to better care for the earth and for one another and greater love than we feel ready to risk. Open our hearts and help us find the courage to truly make wise differences in our communities, neighborhoods, and families. Help us know how we are called and risk joining together in achieving that calling. If the water is polluted, give us strength to clean it up. If our schools need help, let us support them and our children. If people are hungry, let us share what we have. If there are those seeking refuge and in need of safe and warm places to live, may we create those places. What needs doing, let us wisely answer, working together, courageously, one day and one relationship at a time, that this may be a year of wisdom lived and wisdom changing this world and our hearts for the better. Amen.
