Love give us courage to spring off the edge of what is familiar and easy into what is unfamiliar, difficult, or unknown. Give us courage to be vulnerable and to risk faithfully for love, for generosity, for this earth, for one another, for merciful justice, for kindness beyond measure. Love, give us courage and then help us encourage one another to go ahead, be vulnerable and incompetent and unready and unsteady so that we can create and learn and share what is needful and what is good, so that we can become steadfast and safe and competent and well founded in love, in generosity, on a healthy planet, with one another, with merciful justice, and glad for kindness beyond measure. Love, give us courage and help us spring into becoming people of faithful promise again. Amen.
