Lover of Life here we are in this new day, called to attend to one another and to this earth. May we live faithfully today, growing the beloved community, celebrating its diversity and giving thanks for how love calls us every day. May we bear one another up with cheerful steadfast courage through the challenging times and the long labors of creating merciful justice, rebuilding healthy communities, renewing and restoring the desecrated earth and broken bodies and spirits. May we give thanks regularly together and with thankful steadfast generosity share all we can for goodness' sake, be kinder than we might first wish to be, and be more loving than we know right now how to be. Lover of Life here we are in this new day. May we live it well. Amen.
