Most Merciful and Most Compassionate open the doors and windows of our hearts to hope, helping us with where disuse or the weather of this or past seasons has those barriers stuck in place. Open the doors and windows of our hearts to hope and as we breathe again in wonder and possibilities that are good enough to call us to action through our fears, help us head on out those doors to dance again for mercy, for justice, for peace, in dignity, in thankfulness, in love with the life that is and can be. Most Merciful and Most Compassionate we have a world of possible companions for this journey: may we reach out and take up each other for the life labors we face, for celebrating and for courage in challenging times, for the gifts we do not have and the blessings we have not known, for the sheer wonderment of togetherness and for the wisdom shared and gathered and discovered only together. Living in hope, breathing in wonderment, may we meet and create the possibilities most needed in this world today, to end injustice and to bear dignity for all, to free the captives and make welcome and refuge for those in need of home, to tend to the health of the earth and the health of all, to love boldly and mightily, no matter what, no matter where we are, no matter the seasons we must endure. Amen.
