Fructify our dreams, Beloved, with the courage of others, with their stories of how they have brought hope or healing, wisdom or kindness, joy or wonder into being. Teach us through our songs and stories, Beloved, that dreams worthy of living can give us courage and guide us through the long and difficult tasks, the setbacks and the sidetracks, the frustrations and the drudgery that always accompanies doing things that really matter. And help us carry on through all of that, supporting one another and finding the courage to keep dreaming, to keep working for goodness' sake, no matter what. Fructify our dreams, Beloved, and help us encourage each other to stay steadfast and boldly generous in caring for and changing this world. Amen.
