Courageous Love sustain us in living steadfastly, risking faithfully, imagining a better world, and working to create that world hour by hour. Strengthen us to nourish and encourage each other for another day. Recall us through stories that matter to more generous lives that we feel capable of in our most weary moments, stories that give us heart and help us cross difficulties to live for love's sake. Courageous Love when we are shaken with grief or with anger, with hunger or with thirst, with worry or with injustice, help us hold steady, keep reaching out, and keep risking faithfully. Let us not be turned away from the generous, whole-hearted life, but as we are challenged to make our way together through, singing until our hearts catch up to the courage we need to live as we have promised. Amen.
