Bold Compassion help us thaw out the frozen and choked up parts of our hearts, spirits, hopes, words, and deeds. Keep encouraging us to make way for love to travel freely and make way and welcome for all those in need and all we meet. Sustain us in encouraging each other to be both responsible and kind. Never let us forget that responsibility and kindness never truly can be separated, for on their own they are cold mechanical obligation or empty politenesses. Bold Compassion warm our hearts and warm our words and deeds, that we may be bearers of hope and healing. If we should be turned away or around from what love, mercy, and peace require, may we regain our calling, regroup, and head back the way peace, love, and mercy need. Bold Compassion let us be the spring breaking free of winter's hold wherever coldness of heart, spirit, word, hopes, and deeds now prevails. May the spirit of mercy be in all we say and do. May the light of love warm every heart and every hope. May the labor of peace bring all of us cause for rejoicing. Amen.
