The Breath of Life imbues us with the seeds of mercy and compassion. May we nurture and grow those seeds. May we be trustworthy blessers of the blessing of this life, caring mightily and faithfully for this earth which has been so desecrated, exploited, and destroyed. May we recommit ourselves every day to bring healing and restoration, to work with the Holy in reparation for mercy's sake. Dependent upon this earth and upon each other, may we meet together in compassion and in joy, in thankfulness and in courage to restore and renew. Amen.
