Beloved, teach us and lead us in each and every day in our life together with this earth. Though we seek to reduce our fears with seeking control, with legislation, with turning away from our responsibilities to this earth and each other and turning away from our better promises, from honoring each other's gifts and building merciful societies, teach us and lead us back around, Beloved, to what is needful and good. Lead us in living with dignity, in honoring our essential equality, in compassionate care of all beings and all the world. Teach us through our failures and our successes, through the long work together of dissent and difference and connection and agreement and commitment and carrying through worthy dreams into reality. Teach us and lead us, Beloved, in each and every day, of our shared lives, our shared responsibilities, our shared wonderment, our shared joys, our shared calling and our shared work, to love what matters and tend to it always. Amen.
