Lover of Life may we be yeasty, encouraging one another to greater acts of compassion, to making way and making refuge, to being so bold in love we cannot help but aid in changing the world for the better. May we rise past our grudges and beyond our misunderstandings, finding the leavening joy that forgiveness and wisdom bring. When we be as vital and strong as salt, that when we are wrong, we may admit it and make amends. May we feed the world with goodness, tending the hungry, the sick, the imprisoned, the released, the ones in trouble, and the ones out of trouble, sharing life's sweetness in loving care. Lover of Life, may we be yeasty, joining the bearers of hope and the builders of loving justice. Amen.
