Love open our hearts to this new day and to one another. Mercy help us find one another and hold close to how interconnected we are, how much we need one another, how much we need this earth, this air, this water. Love open our hearts to find our way to forgiveness and to making our own amends. Mercy help us find one another and follow the path of reconciliation, and if that path is closed, help us find other ways to reparation. Love open our hearts to the joy of risking faithfully and may we find the courage to do so this and every day. Mercy guide us in taking those faithful risks and nurturing this interdependent whole. Amen.
