May we be so full of steadfast love we welcome every stranger with joy, and when we are the strangers we find ourselves greeted with joy. May we be so accustomed to living in steadfast love that mercy becomes easy, even when we are hurt, and we can find and create a way of merciful peace and merciful justice. May we be so rooted in a life of steadfast love that every word and deed, dream and aspiration nourishes a more gracious and blessed world. May we be so faithful to the life of steadfast love that love is in all we do, all we think, all we sing and say, permeating the dance of our lives and changing for love's sake wherever we are and wherever we go. Lover of Life may we live with such steadfast love we are your cupbearers and cultivators, now and always. Amen.
